    I’m a watch guy that fusses with clocks every now and then. Recently I inherited a clock that has been in the family since early 1800’s. It has a wood movement and is 30 hours. I have repaired the movement and it runs very well. I want to have the dial restored but I can’t remember the names of the folks back east that have a good reputation. Can anybody recommend someone to do the dial? Does anybody know who made the movement? Who made the clock? I want to see what it is supposed to look like when I restore it. dial movement clock splat case
    The case is 33.5" tall by 17" wide and about 5" (a little less) deep. The dial is 11 3/16 high and 11 13/16 wide. The movement is 11 3/8 high and 11 3/4 wide. The distance between the winding arbors is 3 1/2 and the distance from them to the center post is 2 3/4 inches. I could really use any information you can offer. Thanks

    The one with the most recommendations on the message board is The Dial House. Here is the contact info:

    They probably have on file a dial design that would be a good match for yours.

    Thanks for the information. I will go to their site right now and see if I can get that part going. I already have a new door lock ordered.
