New Hampshire Mirror Clock Attributed to Samuel Abbott, Dover, New Hampshire, c. 1825, turned, painted and gilt columns with gesso rosettes in the corners frame the full length door with looking glass and reverse-painted glass over the slightly concave painted iron dial with Roman numerals, eight day time only "grand piano' type movement with recoil escapement, pendulum and iron weight descending behind two iron guide wires, ht. 30 1/2 in. Samuel Abbott (1791-1861) was a clock and watchmaker in Dover, New Hampshire, Montpelier, Vermont and Boston. He made a variety of forms and is noted for his "grand piano" style movements. For more information see Paul J. Foley, Willard's Patent Timepieces , p. 207. Case surface and interior painted black, dial undisturbed, looking glass and painted tablet appear to be old; reverse painted glass probably not the first.
