    Can anyone steer me to a book (or other reference) that shows some nice photos of Silas Hoadley tallcase wood dials? My "new" clock's dial is in bad shape & I'd like to know what it should look like. Thanks!

    The complete description with other photos is at http://www.rubylane.com/shops/cathysclocks/item/260

    Some more good ones here:

    And here:

    I don't know if these help or not. I found them with a google search on Silas Hoadley. I hope someone can provide a book title for you.

    Regards,
    Mike

    Thank you Mike! Ijust loved looking at those beautiful clocks! Mine spent the last century in a chicken coop, but these inspire me to what it could look like. None of the faces, however, were too similar to mine, so I'm still looking. I did see an NAWCC video which showed several, some painted wood, some paper over wood, but the video wasn't as clear as I'd like. I was dissapointed that the Tran duy Ly book on machine-made tallcase clocks didn't cover this early factory product.
