Recently got a tall case GF clock made by George deFore in Fish Creek, Wisconsin. Seems he specialized in authentic hand made recreations of early American time pieces. I can't seem to find anything else about him. Wonder if anyone here has heard of him. Thanks.

I’ve seen a few of his clocks over years. I even sat with him once at a Christmas luncheon at Chapter 47, Milwaukee.

He had. Clock shop in Fish Creek. It’s in the Door County area. I was up there with a friend and we stopped in his shop. It was more then 20 years ago and is mostly a blur.

Thanks for the notes. It is a beautifully made clock. I imagine he has passed away by now.
