    I got this little guy at an auction a few months ago and have been wanting to get it going for awhile now. There is no information or markings on the case or the movement and every person i've shown this movement to says they've never seen one like it..So if you have a small movement you think might work, please let me know. Thanks!

    Interesting clock! Why not use the one you have?

    It needs way more work than I am capable of doing at this point. Someone had it before me and they really jacked it up. I do plan on putting the original movement back in when I get some more experience.

    I would think that reviving this movement would still be the best option.

    There are many folks here to guide you through the process if you're at all inclined.

    What would you consider the issues to be?
    Some detailed pictures might help.

    This movement appears to be a dual ladder movement (with an alarm extension) designed by S.B. Terry. The cottage clock could be a Gilbert. Terry worked for Gilbert about 1859 to 1861 and redesigned some of their shelf clock movements. It is a movement well worth keeping and at least eventually restoring.

    Do you happen to have a picture of the movement in place with the door open? Thanks!
