This fine patent time piece was an early made Presentation banjo clock Ca. 1800. It is signed Concord on the dial and is original. The hands are of club styling and are close to the clocks made by Luther Smith also of Keene New Hampshire. The case is made of mahogany. The Gilt recessed rope frames are also original as are the tablets with reverse paintings depicting a girl, walking with a fruit basket with apples in autumn, surounded by a red border, with gold leafing and with a white base background. The upper tablet, depicts the fruit basket, gold leafed with geometric pattern in red, blue and gold, also with a white base back-round. The side arms are solid brass, filed with cut diamonds. The bezel is cast brass. The finial is a spire brass spun ball with an ornamental filigree which sits atop a double step chimney.
This is a real early clock. One that should be in your Time Piece collection...
