Condition Report For Lot# 812 :
someone has done a good job of adapting this English movement to an old Continental case. The brass dial plate is recent, cut to fit shape of hood, and the original spandrels, chapter and hands added, with crown cut off 4 of the spandrels. This style English birdcage movement always had a square dial with 4 corner spandrels. The case has been refinished and has minor veneer loss at top and bottom left ears of the hood, side front round molding on the trunk and others. There has been some veneer replaced elsewhere. The glass in the hood door is absent. The movement has been recently serviced and with pendulum present but disconnected due to stripped threads. Ht 85 1/2"
Estimate: $700 - $900
