*RARE* ANTIQUE AMERICAN R.E.NORTHROP 1820s FEDERAL SHELF CLOCK Description
This is a rare antique American Federal shelf clock signed by the maker R.E.Northrop. It measures 31.5 inches in height with the crest, 27 inches in height without the crest, it is 18 inches wide, 6 inches in depth. The mirror on the door appears to be original but the clear glass above it has been replaced.
The face is the original wood face with beautiful original gold gilt paint in excellent condition. It is weight driven but the weights are missing. The brass movement is unsigned but of excellent quality and condition and appears to be an 8 day movement.
It has the original label inside , someone put plastic in front of the label to save it, you can remove the plastic if you need to. It has side columns, there are a few small veneer nicks, pictured, one piece of veneer near the door key hole replaced. Egg & dart molding around the top. I believe it is the old original finish, but parts look like they may have been cleaned. This is a very visually stunning clock with heavily carved claw feet, one foot has a nick to one toe, pictured. I believe the clock hands are original and the turn key to wind it is original.
It is a very rare pillar & scroll type clock, one of the earliest makers in the country which is why they are so sought after.
