    I just repaired this old long case from England. The owner sent these photos before I started the repair work. I do not have a photo of the whole case yet. The finials are missing. What style would they have been? What can you tell me about it? Thanks,
    Will

    Samuel Hardeman is listed in Canterbury c 1794-1839, his son Edwin succeeded him. Finials would typically have been brass, the hands are not the originals. The dial looks to be early 1800s.

    Thank you, gentlemen. After installing a couple of bushings, making a new suspension spring, cleaning off all the machine oil she dumped on it, polishing pivots, and adjusting the pendulum, it’s ready to return to the case. She will be excited to read your comments.
