I agree, as the others have already said, this is a movement older than its case.The movement looks older to me
Well, although it's not my personal taste, I can somewhat understand why it might appeal. If it were polished up I think it could look quite fine, and we know it has a good quality movement. So yes, I could understand someone liking it.A young relative of the owner was there when I was loading them up, and she liked this clock better than all the others. Go figure!!!
Since there are no mounting tabs on the posts and no screw holes in the case, it is hard to tell. It mounts on the board with two pillar screws which screw into the lower pillars. All looks original to me.Could this be an older movement that someone put into a later case?
Sat on a seatboard like that it may have started life in a bracket clock.Since there are no mounting tabs on the posts and no screw holes in the case, it is hard to tell. It mounts on the board with two pillar screws which screw into the lower pillars. All looks original to me.
I repaired the bracket clock about 25 years ago. The owner lost his sight in one eye and almost all in the other eye. He decided to sell all his collection at once because he couldn’t enjoy them any more. I went to see them because I remembered the bracket clock. I didn’t know what else he had. I bought them all. Right place/right time thing.Will, what auction did you buy from? You got a truck load!
That’s good to know, Zedric. Please post a link if comes available. I would like to see it and compare. Thanks.There’s a mahogany octagonal cased clock in one of the big UK auction houses, coming i toP for sale soon - cant link as it is not yet sold. It is a bit older than yours, but while the style is unusual for English clocks they were clear made this way.
