Never seen a British tall clock with initials stamped in the movement like that smike. These movements were purchased as rough movement kits from foundries, and finished by the makers. It would have taken a fair bit of skill to put the kit together and turn it into a working movement.
not sure those dubliners would appreciate you calling them brits!
dublin, 1840-ish. if it took a fair bit of work to pull the movement together someone definitely did so... it has a lot of nice little touches.
I did that with my first one for a long time, just staring at the dial, It is in the hall so I walk past it all the time. Even now I have a house full of them I look on that one as an old friend. You probably realise by now that I'm not a huge fan of painted dial clocks but I think you have a really good looking one there, understated and elegant, it is a great clock.oh, just about every five minutes!
Many movements were marked. John Robey did an article on them, relative to English movements supplied to American makers. He has a number of images with marked movements.
Here's a couple of images of a Joseph Eberman , Lancaster, Pa Dial and it's movement.
