Detailed Photographs

A rare and important antique dwarf clock, by Joshua Wilder, Hingham, Massachusetts. The case attributed to Henry Willard, Boston, circa 1824-30.

This highly important Joshua Wilder antique dwarf clock has a diminutive mahogany case, proportioned to represent the form of a tall case clock from the workshops of Roxbury, Massachusetts. The dial is signed below the center arbor, " Warranted / by J. Wilder / Hingham ". The case features superior mahogany veneers, the door and lower case each with a vibrantly figured center mahogany panel. The case of this antique clock terminates with a pillow molding atop a distinctive pair of gilt brass classical paw form front feet and turned rear feet. The dwarf clock case is marked in three places with the incised number "600" a technique which is closely identified with the cabinet making shop of Henry Willard. This dwarf clock has a mate with identical veneers and a dial signed by Wilder's workman Martial Shearman. It is illustrated in Fine Points Of Furniture, Early American by Albert Sack, page 129.
