Determining country of origin, English vs. American clock movement, can be very difficult. From your two photos, I suspect it to be English, but made well away from London or any other seat of major clockmaking. It is more roughly made than most English/Irish/Scottish movements, but does not exhibit several of the traits commonly seen in American clockmaking of the period. By that I mean the brass plates appear well cast, the columns are well done, the rack and strike initiation levers are well done, etc. The heavily incised layout lines are not commonly seen here either. We see a lot of clocks here with smooth drums, while yours are grooved. The very little that can be seen of your seatboard is more suggestive of being American. (thick, and apparently pine?) So, overall, no real proof points in either direction. We also imported a lot of English work back in the day, whole movements, or kits of parts, completed the clockwork and applied our faces and names, and claimed it as ours
Yes, everything on the rest of it is completely untouched and original. Thankfully no repairs or restoration to the case or dial and it’s going to stay that way as long as I have it.Looks like a nice dial, a very nice case. Good name and location on the dial also! Deserving of a well-fit-up movement to the dial I think!
That would be how it works in my thinking. I have had one or two movements with similar arrangements over the years. I searched my photos this AM to no avail. I evidently didn't take any photos of that clock or clocks.....Ah, good spot, is that the hole for the steady pin under the backcock then?
