Can anyone identify the maker of this tower clock mechanism?
No identifying marks anywhere. 18 in. tall, 14 1/2 in. long, plates 9 1/2 in. wide, overall width 16 in.
Graham dead beat escapement, 30 tooth escape wheel and meter long pendulum.

Thank you, Alan

Alan, I don't recognize this movement, it is likely English or Continental. Was there no descriptive sign with it? Where is it located?

Thank you Peter and Kurt for responses. Peter- the beautiful pendulum construction apparently appears to be English or European but there are no markings on any castings and no indication that a manufacturer's plate is missing. The clock is in Santa Monica, CA. Kurt- Good eyes - that sign was done by me for a meeting that I had. No one at the meeting could help.

Alan, you may want to drop a note to Chris McKay at Welcome
Chris is very knowledgeable about English turret clocks and could probably identify it's maker or at least the origins of the castings. He has helped me greatly in the past.
