Aaron Willard Jr. Banjo

Aaron Willard Jr. Banjo

Circa 1815-1850.

Walnut case with crackly finish. Brass bezel and side rails. Wavy glass, reverse paintings are outstanding and original with professional touch up and stabilization. Middle throat glass is hinged. Finial is old and may be original. Metal weight guard behind pendulum is an old replacement. Original "Aaron Willard Boston" signature on dial may have been strengthened. 8-day time only movement keeps great time.

Clock was previously in the Hearst collection, pedigree written on the weight guard. Really is an outstanding clock.
