I purchased this case with no movement, no interior support for a movement and it needed some serious help. First off, the case itself is made from two different kinds of wood , oak and pine. The door, top, bottom and the scroll work is all Oak with the remainder made of pine. All this turned out to be was a refurbishing project …the case needed some minor cosmetic help from the chips and scratches over time. I blended in the chips and scratches with mahogany stain, only a little bit because I didn’t want to change the existing look of the case. The antique look of the clock case is amazing. I don’t know who originally made this case and no date was found on it. It cleaned up nicely. I ended up making a simple support for the clock movement out of some scrap craft board for the cleats and 1/4 inch plywood for clock movement/face, and with mahogany stain, it blended nice with the clock case. I then added a Quartz/Mechanical strike movement ,Vienna style dial with glass and brass bezel, pendulum with bob and lyre attachment. I think it turned out pretty well.
