The “Dorchester" model comes from the Hepplewhite period design and Hepplewhite principles have been carried out conscientiously in this model. Hepplewhite was more or less a contemporary cabinet maker with Chippendale but the former never applied any suggestions of Chinese architecture in his work. Hepplewhite was fond of the sweeping curve. Most characteristic of all, however, is the inlay along the base. Hepplewhite used this extensively and the “Lynnwood" is strictly after his ideas. The “Dorchester" supplements the “Lynnwood" in that it is a larger clock in every proportion. The case is veneered satinwood with a Spanish high-lighted ﬁnish.
