I picked up this nice looking, crusty old dial clock without seeing the movement. I thought for what it is, it was cheap, so anything inside the case would be a surprise. Turns out the movement isn't very impressive. And the spring barrel cap came loose, but this spring is still good. I was hoping for a shouldered plate, or A-frame fusee. Anyway, the case is very attractive. Looks like English walnut featuring a thin bezel and convex dial. Looks like it hasn't been touched since the 19th century, except replaced side door hinges. The signature on the dial is long gone, and I continue my winless streak with my little black light. But he is an elegant little fellow. Typical nonsense that you get with an unrestored dial clock: broken pendulum suspension, 2 dial pegs missing, missing side door molding. I know there was another fault or two but now can't remember. The bezel has it's original putty, and key locks at the side. I have a key that came with another clock, that is useless for that clock, but unlocks the bezel on this clock. Or, you can pull on the bezel and it will open. Bottom lock is intact, too.
