I found a beautiful cast iron clock case that I would love to know what type of movement would have been in it. I plan to restore the case. It appears the movement would have attached to the backplate, as there are 4 holes on it, an no mounting holes inside on the case face.
Any one have any photos of the type of face or movement? I'm thinking IMG_2841.jpeg IMG_2852.jpeg an Ansonia. Also, on the label you can see "H. G. Bates & Co. Clock Factory 1652 Ridge Avenue". Thanks!! image.jpeg image.png

Wow that must be heavy! I have a French, "black marble" clock by Vincenti of a similar design to your clock.
