Antique 1815 Simon Willard Banjo Clock W/ Soldiers Native American * Very Rare :
$3,600


THIS sale IS FOR THE AMAZING CLOCK PICTURED. THIS IS A AN EARLY (1815-1820), VERY WELL MADE WILLARD BANJO CLOCK IN WORKING CONDITION (NOT SURE HOW ACCURATELY IT KEEPS TIME BUT IT DOES SEEM TO RUN FINE - KEY IS INCLUDED). IT HAS WONDERFUL REVERSE PAINTED GLASS PANELS, FEATURING SOLDIERS AT BATTLE AND A NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN. IT'S A VERY LARGE AND HEAVY CLOCK, MEASURING 4 X 10 1/4 X 36 INCHES. IT HAS SOME WEAR BUT IS QUITE NICE FOR IT'S AGE. THE EAGLE THAT SCREWS ONTO THE TOP IS IN NICE SHAPE BUT IT DOESN'T SCREW IN VERY TIGHT (MANY YEARS OF SCREWING AND UNSCREWING IT). THIS WAS RECENTLY ACQUIRED FROM A WEALTHY FAMILY AND IT HAS BEEN PASSED DOWN SINCE THE 19TH CENTURY. IT WAS SCHEDULED TO BE saleED THROUGH SOTHEBY'S ABOUT 30 YEARS AGO BUT THE FAMILY DECIDED TO HOLD ONTO IT FOR A WHILE LONGER (sale ESTIMATES WERE VERY HIGH). THIS CLOCK HAS BEEN SERVICED LOCALLY BY THE SAME PERSON FOR NEARLY 20 YEARS. THE WORKS ARE ABSOLUTELY ORIGINAL AND COMPLETE. DUE TO IT'S VALUE AND FRAGILITY, I WILL NOT BE SHIPPING THIS CLOCK (THE GLASS PANELS WOULD NEVER SURVIVE). PLEASE DON'T HESITATE TO EMAIL WITH QUESTIONS. BUYER MAY CHOOSE FROM THE FOLLOWING OPTIONS: ARRANGE PROFESSIONAL TRANSPORT TO THEIR LOCATION; PAY REASONABLE PRICE FOR DELIVERY WITHIN 200 MILES OF MODESTO, CALIFORNIA; PICK UP IN MODESTO, CALIFORNIA (NO CHARGE). HAVE FUN offerDING AND GOD BLESS!
