Burleigh Girandole Clock - Magnificent! (Sold)
Item ID: 1536 - Burleigh Girandole Clock. This is an early example of the superb workmanship of Ted and Fran Burleigh and The Gilders Workshop of Winchester, MA.

To quote a 1981 Burleigh sales brochure "In 1973 the Burleighs had the opportunity to copy, line for line, the Curtis girandole clock known as the "bride's clock", now on loan at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The girandole, known as the most elegant American clock design, is a challenge to the craftsman with its hand carved eagle finial and acanthus leaf bracket and the use of fifty burnished gold balls as trim. Again, the Burleighs are totally involved in the crafting of the case - Ted doing all of the carving, finishing and gold leaf preparation and Fran the gilding and painting of the glass tablets. The reverse paintings for girandoles are unusual and intricate. In addition to the "Marriage" scene of the bride's clock there are choices of five paintings, all copied directly from originals."

This example, #5, is ca. 1974. The clock is in superb condition in every detail. The Rowe's Wharf, Boston glasses, signed A. M. Bannister, GW(Ann Bannister) who worked with Ted and Fran at the Gilders Workshop, show a scene looking down State Street with it's rows of buildings, toward the ships docked at Rowe's Wharf. The 8 day weight driven clock movement is made by Kilbourn and Proctor. The clock is in fine running condition. Please view the photos carefully and enjoy this wonderful timepiece. This clock is as close as one can come to an original Curtis Girandole and at a small fraction of the price. Email me if you have questions.
