Description

This is a tall country clock produced by Squire Millerd (often spelled "Squire Millard"). The dial is a beautifully-engraed silver over brass, and reads "Squire / Millerd / Warwick", which is about 10 miles South of Providence, RI.

The cherry has turned a beautiful lemon yellow/brown, and movement and case are original in every way. This clock came out of a local Rhode Island estate auction.
