    Charles Dickens and Sir John Bennett.

    A friend who I brought a pocket watch from, signed Sir John Bennett, sent me the card attached, as I told him I also had a clock signed by him also. It appears they were quite good friends, and Dickens brought quite a few clocks from him, but Dickens was a perfectionist and often found...

    Re: Welch steeple clock auction buy Thank you David, looked closely but movement unsigned, my clock stands at 14 1/2 inches, so would appear to be made between 1872 and 1878 from your information, thank you very much for having a look.

    Welch steeple clock auction buy Hi brought this clock for a number of reason, but mainly I love the bird, the label on the back board is readable but no date, I'm sure the clock is pre 1900, thinking about 1880, no markings on the movement, could this clock be dated for me please.

    Welch steeple clock

    Found the slot, there is so much crud I missed it, will send new photo once I have cleaned the movement, there is a set in the rod which I think should align with the loop on the end of the crutch, if that is the case the leader is a bit short. But we will see,
