    I was watching the highlighes of the 2nd day 3rd test match between England and the West Indies thay showed players who played 100 or more Test matches receiving their silver cap in one of the rooms at lord's cricket ground.

    I notice a clock in the background does anyone know anything about this clock.

    I've seen that style of case recently on a verge bracket clock, but it was quite late for a verge as I recall.

    You could try contacting the ground about it.

    I suspect you'd need to know which room the clock is in. There is likely to be other clocks in the club.

    I'm sure if he sends them the pic they will recognise it.

    Stumped not really. We simply let it go through to the keeper.

    Maybe it has a quartz movement, unless the winding arbors are hidden somewhere that I can't see.

    There appears to be a winding arbour behind the minute hand

    It certainly has one winding arbour, the second may be lost in the reflection, or perhaps the sound was thought to interfere with the enjoyment of the cricket. (may be anchor then, they might not like a verge)

    I suppose that might be a winding arbor at the minute hand rather than part of the hand itself. A better picture would have been helpful, but I suppose that is not to be.

    If you look at the one in the link you will see the winding arbours are in that position, I think the second one is probably there too on the other side lost in the reflection. It would be unusual on a timepiece to have the one there rather than under the hands. The hands on these clocks don't have any extras so what you can see in the pic is definitely one arbour.

    Although the signature may be a clock maker these movements were bought in, so it is likely to be very similar to the one in the link.

    Sorry I am late for my post. I have been about as ill as I've been my entire life, basically bedridden for the previous 2 weeks. I still have no diagnosis, I thought I had a bout of flu. But I assure everyone no contagious via the MB.

    The style reminds me of one of my clocks. The dial is porcelain and signed Ellicott and Company. My clock has a signed Thwaites movement with a serial number dated 1803. The clock always has an anchor movement, which I am perfectly happy with. The clock has probably a mid-20th c. restoration, I was told an American serviceman brought it here. The front frets are all faux, and just part of the door. One of my favorite clocks, although the finish is dark.

    Very like yours, indeed, Chris. It would be nice to see the Lords' clock movement, which I suppose will not happen.

    Sorry to hear of your illness. Hope you are on the mend. I tell my wife every so often that I need to spend a couple of weeks in bed to heal my afflictions, but she simply sneers at me and threatens destruction of my Ingraham Calendar.

    Has any one contacted Lords to ask them what it is?

    :)Steven, we Americans don't take much time off from work. I have often told my wife I'd love to sit home and be sick, just to watch TV and rest, gather my thoughts and such. But it wasn't very fun. That old wool throw blanket wore out it's welcome. I can't wait to go back to working those long days, at least I have a chance to remember what happened.:?|

    Those Cricket fans among us really should pose the query.
