    I'm assuming "Reading" is the Pennsylvania city.

    I looked up the name in my 1955 "Pennsylvania Clocks and Clockmakers" but found no listing for Role.

    It's very possible that he was a dial painter. Is it written small or on the back of the dial?

    I'll look harder through the book, it might list dial painters too but I doubt it.

    Pictures would help, the clock, dial and movement.

    Looked this up in "Loomes". Daniel Rose listed as Reading PA USA, 2 generations with the same name 1749-1827 and 1820-1827. Also listed is a Daniel Rose in London UK which is probably a misspelling of Daniel Rolfe (also spelt Rofe and Roofe) 1677-95. So dating your clock from the style of the case would narrow this down

    Again, good pictures would help. I suspect what you're seeing is an old style "s", which can look like an "f".

    Just bringing this up again.

    Yes, I'd say ROSE, too.
