A RARE LATE CHIPPENDALE GILT AND PAINTED MIRROR WALL CLOCK

Bearing the label of Simon Willard, printed by Isaiah Thomas Jr. in Worcester, Massachusetts
Boston           Circa 1800

Primary Wood: Pine, Metal Sidearms, Gilt
Secondary Wood: Pine

Height: 34 inches
Width: 17 1/2 inches

Reference: Willard is known to have experimented with the sale of many types of clocks as his label advertises, many of which have never been correlated with existing time pieces.
