William Towne has been building
period furniture and grandfather clocks in his small, one man shop in
upstate New York for over forty years. He now confines his work to the
reproduction of eighteenth and nineteenth century clocks that are on display in
museums or featured in his collection of clock books. Each clock is meticulously
created from fine cabinet woods such as mahogany, walnut, cherry or curly
maple, finished with hand applied period finish and fitted with a high
quality weight-driven movement and hand painted dial. These clocks 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.
