     Frederick Heisely Tall Clock

Next

This elaborately inlaid Frederick Heisely (Frederick, Maryland) tall clock case was missing its feet, and the pediment was a poorly executed later replacement. I discovered the remains of a pierced tympanum and of the center inlaid plinth. Using patterns from other Maryland cases of the period I recreated the pediment and finial, and blended them in with the mellow old case finish.
