Sack catalogue description: Hepplewhite mahogany tall clock beautifully and tastefully inlaid with black and white stars in base and scrollboards, inlaid sprandrels in base, the enameled dial door with shell paterae in panel below; fan-inlaid sprandrels and base, the enameled dial is of especial significance bearing the label illustrated. The label provides evidence of dials being shipped from Boston to New York as well as the more usual importation from Birmingham, England; the label also identifies the clockmakers, who are listed as working in partnership in New York from 1802–1811. The beauty of the design is enhanced by a mellow brown patina; dial by Curtis Manufactory, probably Samuel Curtis, Boston. ----- Bibliography: Book: American Antiques from Israel Sack Collection, 10 vols.
