Gilbert and Sessions Clock Cases

I have working movements for several Gilbert and Sessions clocks. However, none of them have cases. I have looked on e-bay for cases, but those that I have seen are in poor condition. Does anyone know of any sources that I could contact that might have cases - either new or used - for these movements? I've already tried Klockit. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

I have an unusual long-case wall clock in oak. Octagonal top, 12 inch dial and presently holding a weight-driven regulator movement and pendulum. I do believe the case is either Gilbert or Ingraham. If you want something that big please send me a PM.

Try going on Facebook Marketplace to find listings from estate sales, junk sales, e.t.c. Oftentimes you will find that after a baby-boomer has passed or older generation person, the family will list all of their clocks/tools at once just to get rid of them. Also keep looking on ebay. You may have to wait a bit and re do some searches, but cases will pop up eventully. I have seen several listings that have a case but no movement inside.
