English Longcase Clock, Tall Clock, Plate Frame Movement, Great Spandrels
John Talor (Engraved on chapter ring)
Bulkington, England
Circa 1680 to 1690
Oak - SOLD


English Longcase Clock, Tall Clock, Plate Frame Movement, Great Spandrels
John Talor (Engraved on chapter ring)
Bulkington, England
Circa 1680 to 1690, entire view

An interesting country example, probably John Taylor; spelling varied frequently and was often phonetic (See Loomes). Bulkington is listed as a town in Warwickshire, and again the spelling difference is not significant. The movement is most interesting; time and strike great wheels are on a single arbor; a rare arrangement. Talor was a superbly skilled mechanic; he made the clock his way!
It appears that Talor may have been a gunsmith by training. Many blacksmiths and gunsmiths made the occasional clock as they were mechanics with skills necessary to create various objects in metal. The treatment and design of iron parts relate to a gunsmith's oeuvre. The pillars and posts are iron and feature most unusual turnings including orbs, rings and reels. The "bright" finish is more decorative than most clocks of the period. The plates on most tall clocks are brass, unlike this movement; the plates are iron with brass bushings suggesting that the maker did not have access to enough brass. yet the dial is standard and doesn't contradict the maker's attention to detailing the movement; the maker most likely obtained the dial from a specialist.

Carved Cherry Tall Clock
A Connecticut River Valley Form
Isaac Parker
Deerfield, Massachusetts
Circa 1770-1750, entire view

The molded arched bonnet with carved rosettes centered by a brass urn finial over astragal molding; glazed lights on both sides of the bonnet. The case is made in three pieces, the hood, waist and base...each section received by the applied molding of supporting section.

The arched and glazed door opening to the dial with enameled pewter hands, second and calendar bits and an extremely rare animated orb encircled by a molded ring centering raised cast spandrels...all above the larger than usual chapter ring with engraved and enameled Roman and Arabic numerals. The dial center has full coverage tight diapering; crosshatch engraving; each dial plate corner with raised-work corner spandrels. The movement is American made (With smooth barrels.) day and second registers. Attached to the dial is an engraved plate that reads-Issac [sic?] Parker-Deerfield; possibly engraved by Parker who is known to have been a competent silversmith. The waisted case with carved quarter-columns has rectangular door with tombstone shaped profile that is hung from original fancy strap hinges and is fitted with a unique upside down kitten head pendulum light. The door lock escutcheon is original. The molded base is raised on applied bracket beneath a compound molding...the feet have simple returns and are centered by a small half circle drop.

Isaac Parker (1749-1805)
Parker was born in Charlestown, Massachusetts, and probably trained as a silversmith under his uncle, John Welsh; worked as silversmith in Boston circa 1770-1776. Isaac Parker served as a corporal in Captain Jonas Locke's company of Minute Men and was on active service for 33 days beginning April 19, 1775. According to the Daughters of the American Revolution records, Parker enlisted twice.

It is known that Parker married Deborah Williams of Roxbury, Massachusetts in 1776 and surmised that they moved to Deerfield because his wife had family in the area. Parker set up shop as a jeweler and watchmaker at Deerfield circa 1776-1778, possibly with his uncle, Daniel Parker (1726-1785.) Parker manufactured and repaired shoe buckles, knee buckles, rings, and teaspoons. In spite of his long career as a jeweler in Deerfield, little evidence of Parker's craft survives. He apparently returned to Boston circa 1789 where he was listed as a merchant.

Only Three objects can be securely attributed to Parker: The above described tall-clock, a tablespoon at Yale marked "I.PARKER" and a teaspoon marked "I.P" at Memorial Hall Museum, PVMA, with a history of ownership in the Catlin family.

Height: 87.75"; Width: 13.5"; Depth: 7.5".

Superb Chinoiserie Decoration
Case bares the paper setup instructions label of Diego Evans in Spanish
David Evans & Peter Higgs
Circa 1760, entire view

David Evans and his partner Peter Higgs, the London clockmakers had a successful trading contact with Spain. Clocks destined for the Spanish market were signed 'Higgs y Diego Evans, Londres' rather than his usual 'David Evans, Royal Exchange, London'.

This example features overall Mandarin, pagoda and guilloche vignettes done in flat and slightly raised japanned lacquer ornamentation; predominantly with gold gilt against a red ground.

The pagoda top with sounding aperture on a domed molded cornice above the astragal-glazed door with notched corners is fitted to the conforming bonnet and has side-lights. The door opens to a brass dial with reticulated gilt-brass spandrels; brushed dial center and a silvered chapter ring having enameled Roman and Arabic numerals. The chapter ring centering a seconds dial above apertures for time and strike, and a recessed date ring, centered by the engraved and enameled shaped signature plaque...all beneath the tombstone arch with cast spandrels centered by the subsidiary dial; dial center is textured; the ring is marked (Tocar/Silencio) for Chime-Not Chime and is flanked by conforming spandrels. All hands are blued steel. The weights, pendulum and key are present.

The hood over rectangular cove molded waisted case with tombstone-arched molded door raised on a molded plinth base.

The surface and decoration remain in very good condition with only scattered losses...pretty much confined to hood. (Height: 98.5".)
