A very rare New Hampshire shelf clock, circa 1810.

Two strongly related clocks are known, one signed by Benjamin Morrill of Boscawen, New Hampshire and the other signed by Abner Jones of Weare, New Hampshire.

This example is the most attractive New Hampshire shelf clock we have owned and features rich contrasting veneers of figured birch and mahogany.

It remains in a fine and original state of preservation.

Total height: 35 1/2"
