antique musical New Jersey clock


Detailed Photographs

A rare and important antique musical tall case clock, by William J. Leslie, Trenton, New Jersey, circa 1795-1800.

This fine antique mahogany and inlaid New Jersey clock is fitted with a very rare musical movement, a feature found on only a handful of American clocks. The brass eight-day musical movement is distinguished from almost all others by playing eight separate tunes, an exceedingly rare and important feature. The case retains a warm old surface with a pleasing mellow finish and the hood is fitted with original turned wooden urn-form finials. The painted dial is fitted with both a moon phase and a calendar window, features which are rarely found on musical dials. The dial is signed below the lower winding arbor, "WM J. LESLIE TRENTON NEW JERSEY".


Height with finial: 100 3/4"; Width: 10 1/2"; Depth: 21"
