I just acquired a project clock. Being relatively new to the clock restoration hobby, I don't have the knowledge that many members of this group bring to the table. I have worked on Seth Thomas, Birge & Peck, etc., but this one is a mystery clock. No label, no stamping on the movement, no dial. I did a cursory look through all of the Tran Duy Ly books last night but couldn't find one with the carved upper part of the columns. Can anybody tell me who made this, and either share photos of what it should look like, or direct me to where such photos can be seen? I would like to know if it should have a wooden or metal dial, and what the top should be: would it be a cornice type, or a splat? Any help will be greatly appreciated. I can be reached at klauderback@comcast.net if you wish. Thanks in advance,

Steven, it appears that you are correct. In looking at Forestville clock images on Google, it probably had a carved splat. Now I need to find out if anybody has one, or if anybody reproduces them. It could also be a cornice style, but looking at the top of mine I suspect it was the splat type. Here are a couple of images from Google, and the top of mine again

Is there a particular section of the forum where I should go to ask if anybody might have a parts case, or an eagle splat for this clock?
Thanks
