Condition Report For Lot# 858 :
case with losses and some restoration, side frets, feet, handle, finials, some moldings, and hinges are detached, but present, movement very dirty, count wheel missing, calendar wheel replaced, one bell and stand missing. This style of case and the current single sheet engraved dial post date Daniel Quare's death in 1724 by 50 or more years. An early 18th century Quare movement was apparently rescued and late in the century a new sheet dial was engraved with Quare's name and fitted into a bracket case of that later period.
