If I were to venture a guess I would say it is English in origin and about circa 1820ish. There are a ton of people here that know way more that I. Chris,

An usual all over single colour dial. There appears to be a signature below 6, if so can you make it out? The style of the dial suggests to me it is before 1800, does the back of dial have a marker's mark?

Jonathan, do you think the blue is original? It seems to have been rather hastily applied, covering the edge of the white dial in places, which is what made me wonder.

Having a closer look I can see what you mean, so it is possible it has, the gold decoration looks to have been quite well done.

Trying to make out the name, I think I can see Tra at the start of the name, and castle at the end? There was a John Tranham of Newcastle, whose dates are listed as circa 1815, and a Joseph Trankle 1864.

I think I see a "c" as the third letter, and maybe a "k" next, so TICK...? Also are there any other ....castles? I think I am seeing ...lcastle.

I think I figured it out. "TICKLE NEWCASTLE" And the face looks a lot like another William Tickle clock, as does the mechanism.
