Sack catalogue description: Banjo clock with gilt spiral borders, acorn finial, lower panel depicting the Boston State House; upper panel with figure of Liberty holding flag and marked "Patent." Attributed to Lemuel Curtis. The exquisite beauty of the painted panels is rarely achieved in a banjo clock. This clock was purchased by us directly from descendants of Governor Talcott of Hartford, Connecticut. ----- Bibliography: Book: American Antiques from Israel Sack Collection, 10 vols.
