William Towne has been building
Grandfather clocks for over forty years in his small, one man shop in
upstate New York. He now confines his work to the reproduction of eighteenth
and nineteenth century clocks of museum quality. Each clock is meticulously
created from fine cabinet woods such as mahogany, walnut, cherry and curly
maple, finished with hand applied period finish and fitted with a high
quality weight-driven movement. These clocks already grace many homes in the
United States and will be passed along for generations.
Early cabinet-makers built clock cases one at a
time making each case unique. William Towne creates his clocks in this
manner after the styles of the Chippendale and Federal period. . All are
unique, signed and dated.
