Samuel Mulliken Tall Clock

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.
