    Please help, could this be my first pure American grandfather clock?

    Before anyone jumps on me, that's not a heat vent, just a fresh air intake for the furnace.

    Please help, could this be my first pure American grandfather clock?

    The current prices are so sad. Last year we "rescued" a late 1770s brass dial , Selkirk Scotland. Perfect shape but on its way to Goodwill for $400. Didn't even haggle the price since it was for charity. Didn't have room for another big clock but it felt like a puppy to be saved.

    Really like the proportions. Has the case been stripped?

    Requesting assistance with identifying Scottish Longcase (white dial) - 19th or early 20th century

    And we never get tired of good pix. More of the dial & case details. I have 2 Scottish brass dials, one from Dumbarton & the other from Selkirk. Earlier than your white dial, circa 1775 -1780. Sue

    Requesting assistance with identifying Scottish Longcase (white dial) - 19th or early 20th century

    You will get more info/feedback if you change the title of your post. The words Hall Clock will cause some to scroll by. Try Scottish Longcase instead. Might add white dial to your search.

    Show us your Half hour markers on brass dials

    About when did half hour markers stop? Would the time frame be different in Scotland? Just curious, both my brass dials are apparently too late ( 1775-80)

    James Cameron, Selkirk, Scottish Long Case Info Sought

    I also have a long case marked Selkirk, but an earlier brass dial. Samuel Russel. Wonder what the history of clockmaking was in that area. It was in good shape: needed cleaning, new gut, finials & my husband made a piece for the strike. Paid $400 at a charity Facebook listing. Didn't want to...

    Please can someone help me identify this clock?

    Did you just get a movement or is there a case?

    Maybe a Whiting Clock

    What's with the plugged holes on the dial? Kind of strange place. Certainly not an expert on painted dials. Someone here will help figure it out.

    American Help I.D. this maker

    There is a long thread on Scottish brass dials. Yours looks like a cousin to my John Key clock made not far away in Dumbarton. How about some case photos?
