ORIGINAL PAINT DECORATED TALL CASE CLOCK

Original paint decorated Grandfather clock signed by Silas Hoadley of Plymouth, Connecticut. The painted wooden dial has hand painted masonic motifs. There are pewter hands to indicate time and there is a calendar and a second hand. The thirty hour wooden works have pull up tin sand filled weights.

The initials EM are stamped on the inside of the case, perhaps an owner. The period bell is not original to this clock. There is a filled split on the lower part of the case. There is an old 2" patch on the top corner of the hood. The hood does not have glass. The bottom board on the inside of the case is missing.

There is 19th century varnish over the paint. There is touch up to the bumped corners. There are two parts on the works that appear to be replacements, one of which is just a spacer. There are some tiny repairs to some gears.

While we have gotten the clock to run for a short time, we are selling it as not running. All in all, this clock is in remarkable shape for its age. Of course, original paint is seldom encountered. Additional photos are attached by the magnifying glass icon.
