A very good Hepplewhite antique tall case clock by the rare Southeastern Massachusetts maker, Allen Kelley, Falmouth, Mass, circa 1815-20.
The finely executed Hepplewhite case of this antique tall case clock exhibits the refined materials and proportions typical of cases produced in Boston. The case does possess some wonderful regional characteristics, such as the distinctive and quite successful fretwork. The classically decorated dial has bright urn and swag decorations in the lunette and at each corner spandrel. The original graphics on the dial are strong and the open loop hands are another terrific regional variation. The dial is signed in flowing calligraphy below the center arbor with the clockmaker's name and locale, "Allen Kelley / Falmouth". The antique brass clock movement is of eight day duration and is in fine running condition.
Height including finial 89 1/2"; Width 18 ½”; Depth 10”
