Looming at seven and a half feet tall, this solid mahogany grandfather clock balances the simple and ornate into a concise sophisticated design. The clock has a rectangular bonnet, body, and base with complementary elements to offset the weight. Four narrow columns extend the space between the bonnet and base and reinforce the recessed space left by the body. Near the top of the bonnet, a beveled split pediment frames a spinning top-shaped finial. The bottom of the bonnet frames the clock face with a half-moon recession.
