Clocks - Vermont Coffin Clock

Antique Vermont Coffin Clock

HISTORY

This coffin clock, sometimes referred to as a box clock, is a scaled down copy of an antique clock. The original was built by Levi Pitkin of Vermont around 1800. It was very large – over 45 inches high – had an eight-day, weight-driven movement and a hand-painted, wooden dial face.

This clock has the same proportions but is scaled down to 24 inches high for the smaller homes of today. This version uses a modern quartz movement with a 16 inch long pendulum. The clock is nothing more than a simple box with a lid.
