This Early Tall Clock that sits proudly in the Meeker Drawing Room is an important artifact in the collection of the Delaware County Historical Society. The provenance is well documented with a clear Delaware story.
It was brought to Delaware County by the ancestors of the Snyder Starr Family when they carried it over the Appalachian Mountains to Delaware.
The Clock was purchased by Aaron Synder (Great, Great Uncle of Edward Snyder Starr) in German Town Pennsylvania in 1758, made by Augustine Neifner. Mr. Neifner was a Philadelphia clockmaker from 1717-1780.
The case is Chippendale Mahogany. The face is engraved and painted brass with cast metal face with phases of the moon on the dial.
