Rare American bracket clock, ca. 1810, with a fully engraved silvered dial, inscribed {Richard Miller}, having fusee works with phase of the moon and date mechanisms, in a domed mahogany veneered case with oval side windows, 19" h., 14" w., 10" d. Richard Miller was a member of the Miller clock making family of Elizabeth Town, New Jersey, before setting up shop in Duck Creek, Delaware. While the case is not original to the works, the style is identical to a clock made by George Jones of Wilmington. The engraved face is very similar to the Richard Miller clock pictured in Philip Zimmerman's {Delaware Clocks}. Provenance: Edward LaFond, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania; A Private collection.

Condition

Mahogany veneer in dome has age cracks and one oval side window is cracked. Case and works probably associated one hundred years or more ago. Pook & Pook does not guarantee clocks to be complete or in working condition.
