I know I have been posting a lot, but just joined and am catching up. Some of you may have seen this clock on ebay. When advertised, I assumed it had been separated from its case long ago, and planned to make a new one for it. I was pleased with it when it arrived, especially the engraved scene. I am thinking it is circa 1760’s. I contacted the seller to ask if he had any idea on what the case looked liked, and he said he had the original case, so he separated the clock and case to sell separately from each other. I asked how much shipping would be for the case, and it would have been around $900.00 . With the price of the case and shipping I couldn’t afford to buy it and have it shipped. Had I known it had been separated just to make a few more pounds I would not have purchased it on principle. It is only a 10 inch dial, and the photo of the oak case looked very nice. I would have thought that a small clock with such an evocative scene would have sold well together as a whole, unless the engraving is a fake. The movement is in pretty good shape. If I come into some extra cash I might contact him to see if he still has it. If not, I will copy the original case. Live and learn.
