1830 tole painted banjo shaped wall clock, housing an imported time only, fusee movement, of high quality, with a porcelain dial signed by the retailer, A. Harris & Co, of Philadelphia. An early clockmaker listing in a 1958 copy of American Clocks and Clockmakers, by Charles Dreppard describes what could be this clock. I always assumed that Harris & Co imported movements to be cased in a fashionable case that would be popular with customers of the time – just my guess. Dial is 5 diameter (couple of filled in porcelain repairs). Total case length about 21 top to bottom…. Bottom pediment and ball appear to be wood, rest of case tin and metal. Clock runs for a week andkeeps good time. An interesting clock I have owned for 25 years, time to let it go. A heavy clock, for it’s size…. The item “Antique Signed A.
