Antique Tiffany & Co. Grandfather Clock-Durfee-Horner circa 1910.
An incredible example of extraordinary American clock making, this exquisite, tall case grandfather clock was retailed by Tiffany & Co. of New York. The mechanism itself is the work of Walter H. Durfee Co. of Providence, RI, the preeminent American clockmaker of the time. The carved oak tall case itself is attributed to R.J.Horner, renowned for the most impressive clock cases of the era. Impressive in its construction, this exceptional timepiece keeps accurate time thanks to three brass weights and a pendulum, and also boasts a "chime" and "silent" function. Enclosed behind original beveled glass are nine impressive, signed Durfee nickel tubes that provide magnificent Westminster chimes on the hour, and also signal the half and quarter hour unless the “silent” feature is activated. Above the face is a 29 1/2-day hand-painted moon phase dial, with a mechanism to display the current moon phase and date. The neoclassical tall case is just as striking as the mechanism it contains, exhibiting well-balanced symmetry with elegant flourishes and curved, column accents. That it was once retailed by the legendary Tiffany & Co. is a testament to its superior engineering and design. The clock face is marked "Tiffany & Co. New York" and its age is circa 1910. It measures 94" high x 24” wide x 17” deep.This magnificent piece is worthy of the Tiffany & Co. name and is in truly fine condition.
Its provenance is equally illustrious having been displayed in the Hollywood Hills family home of the famed actors, Alan Hale, Sr. and Jr., for most of the last century. This rare piece has been carefully maintained by a Los Angeles horologist for decades. Similar pieces have sold recently between $28,000 and $30,000 making this offer an extraordinary value.
The Tiffany & Co. Grandfather Clock with Walter H. Durfee mechanism, and carved case attributed to R.J. Horner, is available for local pick-up in Beverly Hills, Ca., or seller will work with your preferred shipper to facilitate its transfer.
