This is a Connecticut clock designed by Eli Terry to sell his clock movements. It is one of three case designs built and patented in 1812. In 1818, Terry sold Seth Thomas the rights to make and sell the Pillar and Scroll model clock for a royalty of fifty cents each and it went on to become one of the most widely produced clocks of the Nineteenth century.

This clock features a 14 day spring-driven time and strike German movement with hand-painted dial and hand-painted reverse painting. All the glass used in these clocks is restoration glass made to look exactly like the glass used in the original clocks of that day. The case work is solid mahogany with mahogany veneers like the original and contrasting maple on the mantle posts. Unlike the original case, sawn sycamore is used (for less wood movement) as opposed to flat sawn pine and fiddle back mahogany on the sides of the case instead of straight grain veneer. It adds to the overall beauty of the case.

This is an heirloom quality piece that is made in the fashion of time-honored techniques.
