It looks like an eighteenth century English eight-day duration long case clock. The case carving is probably Victorian, maybe early twentieth C, it was fashionable then...

And somebody has clearly altered the valuation (figures) without altering the words. And from what I can see, which is not very clear, the words do not seem to have agreed with the figures anyway, even before the alteration.

But I don't really know what comments you wanted.

Just the one date of 1795 for William Ewbank, (son of george) Elland (near Halifax) in Loomes' book.

The case has the right shape and feel for a clock from this locale starting about 1775. Some were carved from new for particular makers but this one would make me uncomfortable. The quality of the carving isn't great, it's a bit chippy. The columns appear to be made from two different styles, perhaps replacements. The damage to the finish of the trunk door will be a concern. The dial appears poorly designed, rather unbalanced. And I dislike the dislodged dial pillar showing to the front at about 8 o'clock. The case would have been a nice generic example before the carver not got a hold of it. There are no pictures of the movement but judging by the overall I can't believe it's anything special. But then I'm only a collector what do I know.
Generally unsatisfactory, and grossly overpriced. Apologies if this seems blunt.

I do not believe Teaclocks ever indicated the asking price of the clock.

The documentation is a sales receipt from 50 years ago. :)

Regards.
Ooops sorry you're absolutely right. You know what assumption does lols.
I got a bit carried away messaging a hero. I was waiting to be told off for being blunt.
Thanks for the heads up.
Cheers.
