Elnathan Taber Roxbury, Massachusetts

Elnathan Taber was born in Dartmouth, Massachusetts on February 14, 1768. He is the older brother of Stephen Taber. Both brothers traveled to Roxbury and were trained as clockmakers by the Willards. After serving his apprenticeship, Elnathan stayed in Roxbury and worked closely with his Mentor Simon. They had a prosperous working relationship and he became one of Willards most famous apprentices. We have owned and sold numerous tall case clocks made by this maker. In addition, we have also owned a good number of wall timepieces in the form of banjo clocks and coffin clocks as well as several Massachusetts shelf clock forms.
