Sack catalogue description: Hepplewhite mahogany tall clock of rare small size, typical Roxbury case retaining the original fretwork, feet, finials and an old or original finish of great aspect, the reeds in the quarter columns and hood columns are satinwood instead of the usual brass; the moon dial is inscribed "Aaron Willard" and is probably Boston-made as there is no cast iron plate behind and the moon crescents have rural landscapes, the waist door retains the original Aaron Willard label engraved by Paul Revere. Made by Aaron Willard; in Brigham, Paul Revere's Engravings, pl. 57, the label is identified as the work of Paul Revere.
