Hi all,
I just received a grandfather clock movement and dial. Can someone help me in identifying the maker and age?

Thank you

It doesn't look English, but in England I associate the arcaded chapter ring with somewhere around the 1770 mark.

Loomes (Brass dial clocks) shows an arcaded chapter ring on a square dial which he dates to 1740 (p. 174). Arched dial examples he dates to 1750s (p 260), 1750-60 (p 287), about 1760 (p 292).

I have the book too, though I haven't read it that much. I've never seen one as early as 1740, just going on what I've seen.
