Condition Report For Lot# 983 :
the case has been refinished and restored. The dial has been repainted but is a copy of the original, which had been damaged. The finials are replacements. The weights and pendulum are period. This specific clock by John Everitt is cited in Spittler & Bailey's "Clockmakers & Watchmakers of America". This is an unusual form with tambour door, found in the furniture of the period, but unknown in a tall clock. Very few clocks by this maker are known. He is probably the John Everitt who died Sep. 11, 1819 in Easton, age 32, whose young demise would explain why so few clocks are known by him. Ht 106"
