    Mora Clock Case

    Movement maker ID.

    I am looking at a lantern clock with two hands and a makers mark of J.J.E England inside a crossed out wheel. The mark is on the rear plate. The number 1579 is below it. Can anyone ID the maker and maybe the age of it. Thanks.

    First Fusee Movement

    Well, I've finished cleaning and brushing the fusee movement and will put it on to test soon. I am going to build a case for it modeled from clocks with similar movements I've seen on Ebay and am looking for sources for parts. Particularly the round glass with the metal bezel and hinge. Thanks.
