Early tall-case clocks capable of playing music are extremely rare. This exhibit will include one-quarter of the approximately 140 early American examples that are known to survive.
The 36 clocks on exhibit were crafted by over 30 different clockmakers from eight states. Work by acclaimed clockmakers such as Simon and Benjamin Willard, Daniel Burnap and Thomas Claggett will be included. Many of the cases were made by important early American cabinetmakers such as Major Stephen Badlam, Matthew Egerton Jr. and members of the Goddard-Townsend School.
This exhibition will end on November 17. 2013.
The Willard House & Clock Museum is open Wednesdays through Sundays, from 10:00AM to 4:00PM.
