    Default Edwardian grandfather clock movement

    Hi, this is another Grandfather clock i purchased but i cant find any makers name on the movement just some numbers on the movement, its a nice clock and im going to keep this one for myself, for a while at least anyway, it does run but needs a service and some bushing work, the dial needs a fair bit of work to but the end results should be very rewarding, its described as Edwardian but i would be interested in any other info or if i could see what it looked like in its hey day, as always thanks in advance for any information regards john

    moving to the dark side, and you were doing so well!

    There were a few English companies that were involved in this revival period, one is still in business working on turret clocks.

    Hi sparkey,

    Take no notice, Nick's idea of "modern" is anything made after 1750 . . .

    Yes, you guys are really disgusting and demoralize the rest of us!
    I love medieval clocks and to have to make do with feeling happy everytime I catch a late 18th century one is rather frustrating

    Oh well looked nice on the pictures, any one got any ideas on it and how old it might be, and while im asking when did they start remaking this style of grandfather clock?

    I think they started around the turn of the century, perhaps 1890 onwards, usually musical clocks.

    Your dial uses a traditional design of arch spandrel, the movement has a late Victorian look to it.

    If you unscrew that plaque on the back of the movement, you may find the name of the maker under it, if there is nothing on the plaque.

    what are the numbers on the movement? We could compare them to T&R to see if they make any sense. Elliots were makers perhaps more likely though.

    The movement doesn't correspond to any examples shown in Clockmaking in England & Wales in the 20th Century which also covers industrialised makers also producing clocks in the late 19th C so it would appear not to be English. The beat adjustment above the back cock may give a clue to a maker who used that arrangement. Date wise it could be late Victorian.

    How could I find out the maker of that type of beat adjustment, I have had a look under the plaque nothing under there,

    Regards john

    Perhaps someone on here will recognise it, alas I don't.
