A Classical stencil decorated banjo clock, probably Simon Willard & Son, Roxbury, Massachusetts for retailer John J. Low & Co., Boston, Circa 1828.
This handsome example of a Simon Willard banjo clock, exhibits the highest quality stencil decorated frames in immaculate original condition. Very few examples of unaltered stenciled clocks remain. The stencil decoration consists of repeating border of stylized oak leaves and small crescent devices. The reverse painted lower tablet has a wonderfully detailed woodland scene, depicting a manor house on the banks of a river with figures in a sailboat. The brass movement is of eight day duration and is in fine running condition.
