James Rodgers 10" Marine Clock
Item ID: 2347 - James Rodgers 10" Marine Clock. An exceedingly rare large dial marine clock. James Rodgers worked in New York City in the mid 1800's and was most known for his tower clocks which were installed in many churches in New York City. Trinity Church Wall St. was probably his most famous tower clock. He also made marine clocks and regulators. Surprisingly very few of his clocks of any type are known to exist today. This 10" dial marine clock is a fine example of his work. The bezel of the case hinges at 3 as does the dial and attached movement. The finely engraved dial and blued steel moon hands are are typical of Rodgers quality workmanship. The fine quality movement is encased in dust covers. The movement is signed J. Rodgers, New York.
