Chippendale Tall Clock Bonnet

Chippendale tall clock commission.

This European tall clock is virtually identical to one in Thomas Chippendale's Director's Guide; however, when purchased the bonnet top was missing and many of the moldings/fretwork were damaged. The owner asked me to replace those elements and finish the new mahogany to match the original. There's always trepidation working on antiques, but this turned out well. The on-sight photo demonstrates the overall proportion of the bonnet to the rest of the clock in its final resting place.
