This monumental regulator stands over 9 ½ ft tall and was deaccessioned from the Fraunces Tavern Museum in Manahattan (near Wall St.). For an image of this clock in relation to other furniture, see below. This regulator retains all its original parts including finials, mercury pendulum, et al. The face is the original silvering, and the works, have been cleaned (by Robert Cheney, foremost clock expert) and are functioning beautifully.
Although the works are
not signed, Robert Cheney feels this is clearly an
American piece, and we feel, based upon our furniture
experience, is New York, and further, the superior
craftsmanship indicates one of the major shops of
that time, like Meeks, & Co.
has become very desirable and a clock of this stature
is truly monumental…and as an astronomical regulator,
is a rarity and treasure. Most regulators have very
plain cases. (see detail). Our clock has it all: looks, function,
