Charles Schiller, a Utica watchmaker who operated a store on Genesee Street in the last quarter of the nineteenth century, sold this clock. The clock case, however, may have come from a Connecticut factory, an area that produced a great extent of the middle-range clocks sold in the United States during this period.
