Lovely clock. I’ve seen the article. Bet the second one was easier! What movement and face are you using?
I’m currently working on a Goddard Newport clock, so I’ve become addicted to all articles and posts re: tall clocks. Yours looks great. My compliments. Great to see more postings of period items.Roger

OK, I cheat on the movements. I use a Hermle quartz movement that has very realistic sounding chimes. The clock faces come from Larry Petro, of Old Time Clock Faces. He has, unfortunately gone out of business. The faces are reproductions of vintage clocks. I’ve found that mechanical movements are more trouble than they are worth.
