A well-preserved tower clock by Benjamin Morrill of Boscowan NH. Circa 1830. This example shows his rather peculiar straight horizontal rack as well as a nice pinwheel escapement. This clock has its original paint on its wood frame, as well as the black on its cast iron wheels and the like. The granite weights are still with the mechanism, which is not common as the weights usually are left in the weight chutes when clocks are removed. A rare piece of Americana in excellent original paint and a nice state of preservation overall. The poorly replaced tin on the clock fan is about its only major flaw and one that can be rectified pretty easy. Very few of these are known to exist, less than a half dozen we think.
