Long-Case Wall Clock_(CC1)37.37.2

Long-case Wall Clock
“Wall-long Case” by Simon Willard is marked with CC0 1.0 Public Domain Dedication

Initially, the idea of a long case wall clock was to hide the weights, trying to imitate a long case without the burden of finding a floor to place it. The Willard Brothers started the trend that didn’t last very long. This illustrated American Simon Willard (1800-1810) clock in mahogany and pine from the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art was made in Roxbury, Massachusetts, at the beginning of the 19th century. It is 37 in. (94 cm) high.
