American Bracket Clock by Richard Miller, Engraved Silver Dial, Image 1

Rare American bracket clock featuring a fully engraved silvered dial, inscribed [Richard Miller], having fusee movement with moon phase and date mechanisms, in a domed mahogany veneered case resting on a plinth base; oval side windows. Richard Miller was a member of the Miller clock making family of Elizabethtown, New Jersey, before establishing his shop in Duck Creek, Delaware. Albeit the case is not original to the works, the style is identical to a clock made by George Jones of Wilmington.
