Project Description

Fine 18th century musical longcase clock with a fascinating history by John Spence, Market Harborough. The movement was originally seen with only the left (strike) and centre (going) trains in place, the right hand (musical) train appeared missing in it’s entireity.

The owner then pointed out that most of the missing “works” were in an old cardboard box sitting at the bottom of the clock case! The great wheel, barrel and click work were missing together with some of the bell hammers and other levers.
