This is an oak-cased clock, about 8 feet tall. The dial seems to be porcelain, characteristically crackled, and has suffered over the years from over-zealous cleaning - parts of the chapter ring and numerals, and much of the signature, have been worn away. I can make out the town name of Halifax (in Yorkshire), but I would need to know some maker's names to guess at that - my wild guess would be Henry Palmer The case is in pretty good condition, is simply but nicely carved, and incorporates brass mounts at top and bottom of the columns beside the dial. The brass hinges and latch seem original. Inside the case there is what surely is an amateurish replacement of the weight ropes, and no pendulum. The movement looks to my unpractised eye to be in decent condition. I know nothing of clocks but I hope that I can get some clues as to the maker, and an estimate of the date of manufacture. The clock has lived in its prpesent house through at least four generations of the present owner, which makes it over 140 years old, and she would like to have it restored, so a very rough estimate of likely cost would also be appreciated.
