Robert Herbst Gold Front Banjo (Sold)
This is a ca. 1965 Robert L. Herbst, Marblehead, Mass. Gold Front Presentation Banjo Clock. The clock is finely crafted of solid mahogany and finished in gold leaf. The workmanship second to none. The dial is beautifully hand painted and in mint condition. The reverse painted and gold leaf glasses are perfect. The heavy steel dial is marked RH65162 on the back. The door glass shows the famous sailing vessel The Hanna under sail with 2 American flags below. The history that follows shows how appropriate the theme of the glasses is to a clockmaker from Marblehead, Mass. "The two-masted, 78 ton schooner Hanna made its mark in America's history by becoming the first armed vessel to sail for the Continetal Navy. The little Hanna was the beginning of a small fleet of United States warships fitted out to aid in the siege of Boston by capturing provisions ships sailing for the harbor from British ports. Originally owned by merchant John Glover of Marblehead, Massachusetts, the Hanna was leased to the newly-formed Continental Navy at a cost of "one dollar per ton per month." After outfitting, the Hanna sailed for adventure on September 5, 1775. The following day she boldly captured the British sloop Unity which was en route to Boston from Portsmouth and heavily laden with naval stores and provisions. The Hanna then returned to port at Beverly, Massachusetts and after much delay in finding a new crew (the original crew mutinied), she set sail again near the end of September of that same year. Due mainly to her inexperienced crew, the Hanna on October 10, 1775, was run ashore by the British ship Nautilus near Beverly. After a spirited engagement between the British vessel and the American townspeople on shore, the Hanna was saved from capture and destruction. Though she was soon decommissioned by Washington after her engagement with the Nautilus, the Hanna will forever hold the distinction of being America's first warship and the forerunner of today's modern American Navy." The quality Kilbourn and Proctor weight driven movement has been serviced and is in fine running condition. The clock is ready to hang and enjoy. Email me if you have questions.
