We have recently received correspondence from David Sperling, an authority on regional tall case clocks. According to his article in Maine Antique Digest, Sept. 15, 2013, titled “The Hunterdon County Clock Case and the Enigmatic John Guild” has determined that Hunterdon County Clock cases are characterized by the inverted bell shaped top of the case door. We would therefore attribute the clock as possibly by John Guild.”

This trip was recorded in “Japan, It’s Architecture, Art and Art-manufacturer’s.” During this journey he represented South Kensington Museum and was commissioned by Tiffany’s of NY to form a collection of art objects. In Japan Dresser was received by the Emperor and was treated as a guest of the nation. This cachepot is a fine example of the ware he designed for Minton’s known a “Cloisonne.” SIZE: 9″ h, 9″ dia.
