Samuel Hill, Harrisburg PA Tall Clock Case

This wonderful Samuel Hill tall clock was purchased from a lady in California where it had been languishing in a storage unit for years. I received it literally in pieces. I wasn't even sure at first whether or not the crotch-figured base panel veneers could be saved since they were so badly buckled and split. Quite a bit of the border veneer was missing and I had to renew all the line inlay. The missing 'castle-top' pediment and finials were recreated using the existing mortices in the top of the hood.
