Dorchester Illustration of the Day no. 1593

 

The delicate Simon Willard banjo clock was known in the early 19th century as a presentation timepiece.  This one was made in 1815 by Simon Willard for the marriage of a Wyman family member of Dorchester.  Miss Margaret Wyman, a descendant of the family, presented it to the Dorchester Historical Society in 1972.
