    I'm working to restore a Charles Stratton Wooden Movement Clock, which was missing it's top when I acquired it. I have found two identical looking cases online, but with two different style tops. I'm hoping someone can provide some info on whether either one (or both?) is correct? Any other photos of Stratton clocks would be appreciated (maybe I should start a new "Post Your Charles Stratton Clocks Here" thread?).

    Here are links to the two photos.

    Here is the case as found:

    And here is my reconstruction of the top in the first photo:

    I'm fairly new at this, so I am trying to balance authentic restoration with my skill level and ability to find accurate info. Any info or thoughts are greatly appreciated.

    Also, what is this style called? I don't believe pillar and scroll or column and splat are correct since there are no pillars or columns.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    I've moved this thread to the Wood Movement Clocks forum, where it should receive a better response.
