At this year’s Hunt Valley Antiques Show, one lucky shopper can go home owning a true piece of American history.
An 18th century grandfather clock featured in the new book Timeless: Masterpiece American Brass Dial Clocks will be offered for sale by Strasburg, PA-based Baldwin House Antiques.
The tall-case clock, dated 1789, was created by noted Philadelphia clockmaker John Heilig to honor George Washington’s inauguration as the nation’s first president. Frank Hohmann, author of Timeless, has deemed it one of America’s 100 most important brass dial clocks.
The clock’s face is inscribed with Washington’s name and includes an engraved portrait of the president surrounded by cannons, drums and flags. An image of a dove, inspired by the weathervane atop Washington’s home at Mount Vernon, appears on the clock’s second hand.
Washington passed through Philadelphia in 1789 on his journey to New York for his first inauguration.
The Hunt Valley Antiques Show, Baltimore’s most prestigious annual antiquing event, brings together 50 of the nation’s top dealers offering for sale more than 10,000 examples of antiques and fine art.
