    This is what I call a real movement!

    The age is I think arround 300 years. Probably made circa 1720-1725. The case and dial are at the restorers at the moment, I thought this one should have a proffessional restoration. The movement is going to be my work :-)

    This is what I call a real movement!

    This very large and heavy movement is from a very early Dutch stoolclock. The maker put in all his efforts to make this one a masterpiece. Beautiful turned arbors and very thick wheels. So many nicely made little details which makes this movement one of the best I have had sofar. It will be a...

    Good provenance is so nice , never ever seen this!

    I have it home and made some additional pictures. It looks like in every corner of this dial there is a haystack?? Does that have a special meaning, or is it someting else what is depicted? The casemaker seems to be a certain Oliver from Spalding. That place is situated 20 miles north of...

    Nick, indeed there is a price quotation on it. I think it reads 8 pound. Have you any idea if that would be the price for the whole clock (case and movement)?

    Return of the lost "son"

    Some 35 years ago I bought my first convex white dial clock. After a few years I sold it to raise some money for buying a "better" clock. Years went by, I always remembered the Geater Bristol white dial clock and a fair number of times I regretted ever selling that one. I still kept a picture...
