Joshua Wilder antique grandmother clock


Detailed Photographs

A rare and important antique dwarf clock Joshua Wilder, Hingham, Massachusetts, circa 1819. The clock case attributed to Abiel White, Weymouth, Massachusetts.

This highly important antique grandmother clock has a diminutive mahogany one piece case, proportioned to represent the form of a tall case clock. This form is often referred to as a grandmother clock. The finely painted iron dial, manufactured in Boston, features a lunette decorated with a song bird perched upon a floral sprig. The dial is singed below the center arbor, "Joshua. Wilder / Hingham". The brass eight day movement is a full striking example, sounding the number of each hour, a very rare feature in dwarf clocks. The case is constructed with a removable one piece pine backboard.


Height including center finial: 48 ¼"; Width: 11 ½"; Depth: 5"
