I recently purchased this art nouveau inspired tall case open well clock. The case is heavily influenced by art nouveau elements from flowers, lines, fluted from base to hood. It is solid wood with only a veneer on the back of the case. However, there are no markings on either the case or the movement. I am thinking 1900 - 1910, British make. If any one has any ideas to: - The type of wood - Maker of case - Maker of movement - or any other other information to properly date and place the origin of the clock it would be greatly appreciated. The movement is dead beat with adjustable pallets on the escapement. Except for some separation on the dial door, it is in good shape. My next step is to have the movement thoroughly cleaned and refurbished, but it looks too be in really good condition. Dial also needs to be re-silvered. Any idea of how they carved the design into the wood? I'm assuming some sort of mechanical operation. Thank for looking at this mystery clock.
