Tall Clock by Samuel
Mulliken, Newburyport, Massachusetts, circa 1775
With a beautifully
engraved brass and silvered brass dial, this clock features an
eight day time and strike movement with an unusual calendar mechanism
indicating the date by a third hand on the dial.
The case is of butternut,
a wood found locally, which looks very much like walnut.
Aside from the finials,
which we had cast to match period finials, the clock remains
in a fine original state of preservation with a rich patina.
Total height including
finial 85" including finial.
