Hello all. I just purchased an antique tall case clock at a local auction. The auction house had it advertised as the maker being Rich Stone of Thames. However in the face it is engraved Reading. Not sure if it is Reading Pa or Reading in England which I believe is near Thames. They also said it was circa 1770 . I tried searching for the maker but come up empty handed. I am not sure what the case is made out of but it does have some fine inlay around the door and on the body of the case. It's not in the best of condition with the lower boards seperating at the seams. It is also missing the pendulum rod and suspension spring so I will have to try to figure all the particulars out such as length and spring size. The cast iron pendulum has a rectangular hole to accept a flat pendulum rod. Any help and info will be greatly appreciated.
