My friend (who has passed away) and I restored this clock, never learning who made it. Seems that there were hundreds of generic makers of these, but does anyone recognize this to be by a known maker? Thanks for looking. Dave

Is this an eight day movement? It would help greatly if you would post a picture of the front plate with the dial off, and one of the bottom of the seatboard. Seeing those, I may be able to identify the maker.

P.S... is the dial original to the movement? It looks like the remains of the lower dial stiffener may have been left in the dial, just above the seatboard, which may indicate a later marriage of dial and movement, but it is hard to tell from the photo. Thanks.

This movement is most likely by Terry and Clark (Eli Terry and Heman Clark). Heman Clark was an apprentice of Terry's and they went into business together in 1805, for about a year, according to Spittler's and Bailey's American Clockmakers & Watchmakers.

Thanks very much, Peter for the info.
And, David- I have no case, just plans for making a suitable case, but I will probably not make one.

Concerning the dial, it does seem to be retro-fit, and is stamped on the back "Joel Curtis". It seems that the clock has been tentatively IDed as Terry, so guess its dial got changed.

Again, thanks to all for the help.

I had a clock of that sort.

it was a weight driven shelfclock with pillared sides.

flat swann necked crest on top.

the makers name was WELCH. I cant remember if it was Connecticut.

The movement and door were stolen and I have the case somewhere in my house in Ireland.

I might be able to get the tenant to see if he can find it, as the details are printed on the back paper.
