• We are aware of the performance issues with the forum. These are due to problems with Comcast's shared lines in the Columbia, PA area.

This English oak longcase clok has a Gledhill fusee movement and a German engraved dial. Refurbished it a few weeks ago. Strange though pleasing marriage..... in fact a threeway :)

Clorisia, I have a Gustafson Becker clock like the one on the wall next to the longcase. It’s the one at the top on the 9 o’clock side. I am missing the top finials. Could you post a photo of it showing a close up of those finials? Thanks.

By the way, I like the longcase.

I make replacement tops for these clocks cast in crystalcrete the strongest of plaster, primed guilded with spray that is very close to the originals. I dont think we are allowed to sell things on this forum? On UK Ebay you will find Swedish wall clock replacement gilded top.

I made the pendulum for the Gledhill movement at 750 g half the weight of the pendulums these normaly have; it works well with the movement
