Paint Decorated Tall Case Clock - Maker Signed…Rufus Cole, New York State, Circa 1825 SIGNED R. COLE PAINTER (Rufus Cole 1804-1874) Outstanding fancy paint decoration, bright surface - SOLD


Paint Decorated Tall Case Clock - Maker Signed…Rufus Cole, New York State, Circa 1825 SIGNED R. COLE PAINTER (Rufus Cole 1804-1874), entire view

Rufus Cole worked in partnership with his father, Abraham, in the Mohawk Valley of New York at Broadalbin - just west of Albany, father and son’s combined talents and skills to produce notable tall case clocks during the 1820s and the early 1830s. Abraham Cole is listed in the 1835 Grantor Records of Montgomery County as carpenter and co-owner of a sawmill with son Rufus listed as a painter…underscoring the logic that father made the cases while son painted and decorated. The year 1850 finds Rufus listed as a 46-year-old painter within the Fulton County census; he was painting houses, signs and carriages long after woodworks tall clocks were no longer being made. This duo incorporated a variety of 30-hour wooden works made by prominent makers of the period; all bonnets and cases are similar; finial shapes vary. (These finials are original.) This dramatic example features imaginative whirling flourishes grained in shades of brownish-red against a background of ochre-yellow producing a feast of motion, color and light. While the paint was wet, Cole created faux-inlay stringing by carefully removing the paint solution in straight lines. The elaborately ornamented case is gilt stenciled with bronze powder motifs found on the bonnet, throat and base…featured are diamond shaped devices on the throat and base that are painted black that present a strong contrasting palate for over-stenciled baskets of fruits and flowers. Adding a touch of whimsy are the top hats painted on the returns of the “broken arch” bonnet pediment; other motifs include foliage, flowers and pineapple; of great importance is the decorator’s signature “R. Cole/Painter” which is stenciled on the base apron. The 30-hour movement and seat-board appear to be original to the case. The case and its decoration remain in a most high state of originality with only extremely minor conservation that David will be happy to explain. (Height: 84”; width: 17”; depth: 10”) Please know that shipping/delivery is easy, reasonable and not a problem.
