Author Talk – Joseph Ives and the Looking Glass Clock

December 8, 2022 @ 6:30 pm

Event Navigation

Make plans to visit the American Clock & Watch Museum for a talk presented by Mary Jane Dapkus. Former Museum curator and editor of the Timepiece Journal, Mary Jane will share research from her award-winning book, Joseph Ives and the Looking Glass Clock. This fascinating book is filled with never-before-published data and relates the role that this clock design played in a notorious scandal involving Lott Newell, the Lewis family, and the headquarters of the Museum—the 1801 Miles Lewis house. Mary Jane will be available after the talk to sign her book and guests will receive the special member rate for the Joseph Ives book purchased that evening.

The program fee is $5 for members and $7 for non-members. Admission to the museum is included. Arrive early or stay late to take in the temporary exhibit, Through the Looking Glass, in the Great Hall. This exhibit delves into the story of Joseph Ives, his famous clock design, and timepieces that help illustrate its important place in Bristol’s clock making history.
Registration requested, but not required. Call the museum 860-583-6070.
