An important patent
timepiece by Aaron Willard, Jr.,
Boston, c. 1815
This superb banjo
clock retains both of its original glasses, the lower glass depicting
the Boston State House and the upper glass fitted with a thermometer.
Both the dial and throat glass are inscribed with the makers
name. While the throat glass has two horizontal cracks that have
been professionally restored, the clock overall remains in a
fine and original state of preservation.
