I rescued this clock from being trashed. The clock is pretty much complete. There's a hand missing and a couple of pieces of the case need to be recreated. Restoring this clock is beyond anything I can get done here in my part of the world. Is this a clock I could sell to someone for restoration. Many thanks, Brian

Not a pillar & scroll clock.

Many would call it a transition clock, though what constitutes a true transition clock & the validity of that term has previously been discussed on the Forums.

The case is a bit special & not often found. It’s a fully carved 1/4 column case. IMCO, definitely worth restoring. Great case with much potential but that amateur replacement tablet is completely wrong & totally ugly.

Not a pillar and scroll, more of a transition case. And yes there is value there for someone who can do the restoration, or more likely someone who needs parts for theirs, movement dial, etc, good find.

Very nice clock. The verge looks like it is on backward in the pictures. Well worth restoring a clock of this type. Some case work, a new tablet, and put the movement in working order and it would be a fantastic clock.

It looks as if everything is original and the clock paper is in very good shape. Those are two strong reasons to bring this clock back to life. With reasonable care and a supply of mahogany veneer, I think the restoration of the case can be easily executed. The movement may be a different matter and need professional care.
