We have this clock in our family. My father had received it as a gift from one of his patients - a prominent citizen who originally came from Connecticut. A clockmaker who repaired the works for my parents in the 80's said it was "from the Simon Willard School". The red border under the ship says "Voyage of Captain Hall" and inside the front, under the pendulum, are the initials "DLW". I knew nothing about Simon Willard and his clocks until recently and am now totally intrigued. Can anyone help identify this one - its age or its maker perhaps?
