One of only a few examples known made by Jonathan Purinton (1732-1816) of Kensington, New Hampshire.

Circa 1770, this important clock features a pleasing case of butternut and a beautifully engraved brass dial inscribed with the maker's name. It is in fine running order, retains an old finish, and is overall in an excellent and original state of preservation.

Total height: 80 inches

It is illustrated in The American Clock by William Distin and Robert Bishop, figures 68 and 69, page 43.
