Sheraton Tall Case Clock with Southern case, possibly Tennessee or Kentucky. Cherry primary and poplar secondary woods. Painted face signed Robert Waite, brass 8-day works. Bonnet with broken arch pediment and turned finials and columns, arched dial with ship, and face with spandrels painted with shell motifs. Single paneled door over a paneled base, all on turned feet. 101" H x 20 1/4" W x 13" D. 19th century. Provenance: from the collection of Grace Tankersley of Knoxville. An early 20th century note with the clock references a Pennsylvania history, however this is believed to refer to the works, since the case appears to be of Tennessee or Kentucky origin. During the early 1800s, when transportation of large objects was difficult, it was common for imported clockworks to be placed into locally made cases. There is also information describing how the clock descended through the family of G. W. McClain of Jackson, TN. Condition: The case was refinished and works restored in 1941. Small patch one inch above the key hole. The bonnet has had some restoration and all finials have been replaced. The dial is in good condition with minor paint loss and some craquelure.
