A Fine Chippendale Block and Shell Tall Case Clock, Rhode Island
Date/Period: Circa 1780


A Fine Chippendale Block and Shell Tall Case Clock, Rhode Island, entire view

Measurement: Overall height: 93"

Material: Mahogany, chestnut, and white pine

Condition: Fine condition with typical wear; extensive restoration to feet.

Additional Information: This attractive tall case clock is the epitome of Rhode Island Chippendale tall case
clocks. Constructed of the highest quality mahogany, it was likely produced in
Providence, Rhode Island. The fine case displays a block and shell carved pendulum
door that is associated with the very best clocks produced in Rhode Island.

The hood features bold arched moldings above and below a narrow tympanum. A
glazed tombstone-form dial door is set between two fluted columns with turned wooden
capitals. A similar treatment with split columns and capitals is repeated at the rear
corners of the hood. The top is set with three fluted plinths, each with turned, urn-form
finials featuring spiral-turned flames. These finials are related to examples found on
clocks by Providence makers. The dial door opens to painted dial of English
manufacture remaining in fine original condition and is mounted with a revolving moon
phase disk in the lunette. The dial features painted floral decoration in the spandrels
around a register of Roman numerals to demark the hours and smaller Arabic numerals
to demark the minutes. A second’s register is above the center arbor with a calendar
register below. The American made eight-day time and strike movement is mounted
with original diamond-form hands. The movement retains an original pendulum with
brass capped lead bob and a pair of original weights. The movement has been recently
serviced and is in fine running condition.

The hood transitions to the waist with a broad flared cove molding above a convex
blocked door with an applied shell-form top. The door is constructed with a mortised
frame, mounted with a fine carved block and shell. The block panel is carved of
exceptional dense mahogany. The pendulum door is set with a lock and brass
escutcheon. The waist transitions to the base with a stepped ogee molding. The base
features a raised central panel of fine mahogany above a stepped molding. The case
rests on distinctive ogee bracket feet that are typical to Rhode Island cases.

Antique Federal Cherry Tall Case Clock by Simeon Crane., Original Condition
Canton, Massachusetts, circa 1810


Antique Federal Cherry Tall Case Clock by Simeon Crane., Original Condition
Canton, Massachusetts, circa 1810, entire view

This cherry tall case clock, which has a very pleasing old surface, was produced by
clockmaker, Simeon Crane, whose work is extremely rare. The son of Canton
clockmaker, William Crane, he was born in Canton in 1776, and worked as successful
clockmaker, gunsmith, and metal worker in the area until his death. This antique tall
clock exhibits both pleasing proportions and refined details and is clearly a successful
provincial interpretation of an early Roxbury case clock. The dial was manufactured in
Boston. It features a wonderfully painted lunette decorated with a central urn device,
with brightly colored red draperies and raised, gilt gesso-work. The four corner
spandrels, which frame the dial face, feature bronze stencils of oak leaves on a black
ground. The dial is boldly signed with the clockmakers name and locale below the
calendar, “Simeon Crane / Canton”.

The hood features a pierced fretwork incorporating a specific pattern that was frequently
used on southeastern, Massachusetts clocks. The waist is fitted with a rectangular
pendulum door, that is flanked by fluted quarter columns of rectangular form. This
hinged door is fitted with a lock and brass keyhole escutcheon and opens to the original
brass capped pendulum and tin can weights. The waist transitions to the rectangular
base with a flared molding and rests on diminutive French feet.

Canton clockmaker, William Crane was married and had a son named Simeon who died
within a year of his birth. A second son, also named Simeon was born in 1776, and
grew to create equally as beautiful and valuable clocks as his father. William made
clocks from 1770 through the time of his death in 1820. Simeon made clocks from 1795,
until his death at age forty-five. The father and son overlapped producing clocks for
twenty-five years. We do not know how many they made, but Simeon was not a prolific
maker. Simeon’s sister, Hannah, married Elijah Morse who along with his brother
Henry, were likely apprenticed to William. By 1809 and through 1815 Elijah and Henry
were clockmakers, brass founders, and gunsmiths.

Dimensions: Overall height including center finial 89.5”; Width 20.25, Depth 10.5”.
