Diminutive Timothy Chandler Federal Cherry Case Tall Clock Concord NH circa 1800 - image 1 of 16

A fine New Hampshire Federal cherry tall case clock with 8-day weight-driven brass works by Timothy Chandler, active clockmaker in Concord, NH from the 1780’s until the end of the first quarter of the 19th century. In 1797, Chandler enlisted with the Minute Men and earned the rank of Major in 1799. He became known as a prolific silversmith, clockmaker, as well as an active statesman.
This clock is of a rare diminutive size and has fine detailed pierced crestwork with brass ball & spire finials, reeded corner columns with brass capitals flanking the arched glass door, opening to a hand painted metal Roman numeral dial with urn and scroll decoration, as well as peach decorated spandrels, signed Tim Chandler, Concord, NH with a calendar aperture, and seconds hand. The waist features a rectangular door flanked by continuing reeded corner columns and capitals, opening to a brass weighted pendulum bob and two lead weights, all supported by a graduated crossbanded base with nicely carved splayed feet. Very good overall condition, with some shrinkage cracks, minor restorations, minor paint losses on the dial, signature on dial has been strengthened, and expected wear from age and use. Some losses on hood top. Dimensions: 82 in H x 18.5 in W x 9.75 in D. Ref: 8
