Tall Case Clock

Tall Case Clock

Commonly known today as grandfather clocks, the exteriors of tall case clocks were generally crafted by a local wood-worker and then fitted with a clockwork mechanism that was purchased elsewhere. ¬†Notice the inscription on the eagle that reads, “Bluribus Unum” instead of “E Pluribus Unum”. ¬†Oops?
