Tall Clock, Federal, Inlaid, Attributed to Nathan Lombard, Sutton, Massachusetts
Mass., Circa 1800 to 1810
Cherry


Tall Clock, Federal, Inlaid, Attributed to Nathan Lombard, Sutton, Massachusetts
Mass., Circa 1800 to 1810
Cherry, angle view

Distinct stylistic, ornamental, and construction details support a strong attribution to Nathan Lombard (1777-1847). The cherry case with mahogany banding features chevron stringing and stylized foliate ornamentation; all characteristics of Lombard's inlays and shop traditions. The urn and foliate motifs issuing crossing vines, tulip heads, rosettes and droplet-shaped leaf inlays relate it to those found on several desk- and - bookcases attributed to Lombard (see Jobe and Pearce, "Sophistication in Rural Massachusetts: The Inlaid Cherry Furniture of Nathan Lombard" in Beckerdite, American Furniture (1998), p.166, fig.3 and p.181, fig.32) as well as to a group of candle-stands (see Jobe and Pearce, p.188, fig.46; p.189 figs. 47-49; p.192, fig.54, see also Christie's, June 17, 1997, lot 415). Constructional features relate this clock to other pieces attributed to and signed by Lombard; they include small, widely s paced glue-blocks at the case bottom; a feature found on many Lombard case pieces including a chest that bears his signature (Jobe and Pearce, p.173).

There are nearly forty objects attributed to Nathan Lombard, however, only one other clock (private collection) is currently associated with Lombard’s shop (illustrated in Jobe and Pearce, p.187, fig. 42). Upon comparison of the two clocks the viewer will observe overall case and ornamental similarities including deeply cove-molded arched cornices; relatively simple, unsigned dials with related enameled designs, fitted with nearly identical hands; also fluted colonettes with Corinthian capitals and molded brass bases; reeded quarter columns with brass bases; and capitals resting on engaged and inlaid plinths. As is often the case, the case was once reduced in height; a horizontal section of the base equal to the height of lower cross-banding and the lower half of each foot was removed. The aforementioned now expertly restored to full height in an undetectable and most successful manner. (H: 95”)

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”.

Movement Characteristics Speak to Thomas & Hoadley, Plymouth, Connecticut
Weight Driven 30-Hour Pulldown Wooden Movement, Original Pewter Hands


Antique Paint Decorated Tall Clock in Original Surface, Circa 1820, angle view

A broken arch [swans’ neck] pediment surmounts the hood; delicate ring-turned swelled
columns on plinths flank the tombstone shape glazed door. The waisted case featuring
cavetto moldings is fitted with a rectangular hinged pendulum door having thumb-
molded overhanging edges. The molded base is raised on applied bracket feet. The
case displays outstanding proportions and inspired original fancy faux grained paint, the
hood, base, and door feature faux string inlays…and painted faux crossbanding. The
scalloped dial spandrels containing gilt leaf devices with red veins and silhouetting
centering chapter the ring having painted Roman and Arabic numerals…weight driven
“pull-down” 30-hour movement with hour strike. The arched dial ornamented with
smartly painted pairs of trees flanking a gilt monument on hillock; tombstone painted
border treatment conforms to border ornamentation of spandrels. The pierced pewter
hands are original. The case and dial display beautifully; vestiges of time [wood
shrinkage] have caused the long-repaired pediment scroll fissures. Our restoration
expert has examined the imperfections sharing that he is able to mask the old cracks.
Our clockmaker has cleaned and oiled the movement which runs and keeps good time.
