A Chippendale style floor clock inspired by David Rittenhouse (PA), circa. 1780. The Empire has a solid mahogany cabinet with curl veneers and decorative carving. The scroll pediment is supported by fine lattice fretwork. The case stands on ogee feet and features fluted quarter columns to the trunk and "Corinthian" pillars to the hood. The cabinet is hand rubbed and waxed to achieve an "antique" patina.
