So this is a really cool, older clock. The first I’ve seen with a wooden movement. Most of the interior label is gone but I’ve included a few pictures of it to see if anyone might be able to help me pinpoint the manufacturer and possibly an age. Really cool piece.

The clock was made by Northrop (Herman) and Smith (Benjamin F.). According to Spittlers & Bailey's Clockmakers and Watchmakers of America (2nd ed.), they were in business from around 1831-1836. According to Snowden Taylor's identification scheme (Excel version), the movement is a type 1.52, made by Northrop & Smith. He actually gives the name as "Northrup", but it's the same person.
