These pictures are not very useful, unfortunately. When you get the clock in hand, post pictures of the movement and label. They might provide clues. So far as labels are concerned, have a look at this website for a possible match.

A better date might be forthcoming upon seeing (1) the movement, and (2) a better picture of the label. The label might carry a printer's name, possibly allowing for a more accurate dating.

Do I know a site such as you mention? Try eBay. There may be many such ogees, if you know what to look for.

The label is definitely from no earlier than the 1880s. As Steven suggested, eBay is a good source for ogees. However, you have to know exactly what to look for. Ogees with brass movements were made from around 1840 through the end of the 19th century (possibly later). Most major manufacturers made ogees, and dating them can sometimes be a challenge.

You should be on the look out for a Seth Thomas OG or Column and Cornice (triple decker) as those are a lot easier to date by looking at the label because 1865 (the end of the Civil War) was the cut-off for when the town the company was located in went from being called Plymouth Hollow, to Thomaston), and if you find a clock that says on both the movement and the label Plymouth Hollow, Connecticut then you most certainly have a Civil War Era (or pre-Civil War era) clock, if the movement says Thomaston, Conn. and the label says Plymouth Hollow, then the clock was between 1865-1870, and if both movement and label says Thomaston then its 1870 and later.

I actually got from my great-father's house when we were cleaning it out a Seth Thomas Column and Cornice clock from 1858 that when I got it, it was in pieces and I was able to piece it back together and replace the missing pendulum bob, winding crank, and weights and its currently sitting on a shelf on the wall in my office running and keeping good time.
