Your parts look OK. Can you explain what's broken?

The first picture shows the pinion broken for the hands, I think it might be called the cannon pinion? Not sure
If I can’t find a part I think I will try to silver solder it
Thanks for your interest

That may be your best bet unless you have someone make you a new one.

It appears the center arbor has snapped off, forward of the front plate. The cannon pinion and snail slide over it.
Silver solder should be a decent fix, if you can't get a replacement center arbor (Some call it the center wheel)..
There is very little lateral force applied to the part in normal operation.
Just be sure to use real silver solder and a torch. Not solder with some silver.

Wanted - Carriage clock bells

I have a growing collection of carriage clocks, some with missing bells, and would like to get a selection of bells of different sizes and depths to suit. If anyone has some available, please let me know. In particular, I'd like to get some bells that can be nested for quarter striking clocks, and some smaller bels for miniatures.

I'm looking for a strip verge for a black forest wood plate and post 30 hr works. The tooth grooves on the impulse faces are so deep they can't be polished out. The escape wheel is 40mm diameter, 42 teeth, and the verge spans 3 1/2 teeth. I'm attaching a photo of the verge needed an the escape wheel.

Hope everyone had a great holiday. Good evening! I'm working on putting this Seth Thomas and Sons/Mitchell Vance Art and Music clock back together again -- the first step was removing the mahogany 4x4 bolted to the bottom. I'm now in need of 4 feet for it like the ones shown. If anyone has a set from an old case, I'd be glad to buy them to make this clock complete again! Even one as a pattern would be a good start. Thanks. Dave

Rather than replacing the verge you may be able to move the escape wheel on its arbor a couple of mm to the side. Then a new surface of the old verge would be used. This usually works very well.

Uhralt, I thoiught of the same thing, but it was already done with the same bad result. It wasn't the escape wheel but the verge arbor that was moved.

Good afternoon, everyone!
I'm ISO a Gilbert "Tuscan", open escapement movement or possibly a broken "Tuscan" clock for parts. Some of Gilbert's statue clocks have an identical movement as well, so, one of those, for parts, would suffice, also.
Thanks in advance,
Bill

Try contacting David LaBounty. If he doesn't have one, he can make one. You'll need specific measurements and tooth counts when you talk to him.
