American (Charlestown, Massachusetts), ca 1815-1820. The tall cherry case with fretted pediment, brass capitols on bonnet columns, and those of thereeded quarter columns on the waist, has an inlaid door with the hold on small button feet. The case appears to be the work of a craftsman familiar with the shop practices of Thomas Seymour (1794-1816). Nearly every tall clock produced by James Doull with an over-sized dial is housed in a case produced by the Seymour cabinet shops. This clock case has attributes similar to Seymour's work, but with nuances that indicate another hand, and later date of manufacture. The works by James Doull(Charleston, w. 1810(?)-?) with eight-day time and strike, seconds and calendar dials and brass movements; ht. 91 in. (with finials).

This case was later feet. See Mussey,The Furniture Masterworks of John and Thomas Seymour,pp. 55-56, and Foley,Willard's Patent Timepieces, p. 243.
