Seller: whistlingwillie (614) 100%, Location: Melksham, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 274355085927 A 30 hour longcase movement of 'birdcage' configuration by 'Thomas Thatcher of Tenterden' and listed in G.H. Baillie. Watchmakers & Clockmakers of the World...as working c.1750 and other research thus 'The youngest son Thomas, trained by his father, also worked as a Clockmaker but all his known clocks are signed at Tenterden. After Thomas died in the late 1760s............. So here is a nice 30 hour rope drive movement by the above maker with a four wheel going train and a striking train with countwheel for the hours. All in fair order and works OK. Rope is missing but I have tested with a brass chain to ensure it does operate satisfactorily both going & striking trains. An eleven inch brass dial with a matted centre and a ringed calendar apperture with a silvered chapter ring and the signature on an applied silvered brass plaque below twelve. Decent blued steel hands are fitted and it would be a good project for a hooded wall clock. There is no pendulum or weight included in the sale. Cash on collection or paypal and postage will be quite a bit as it is a heavy item. ..................................................................... Condition: .In good order and has a nice dial & hands., Age: George lll, Material: Brass & Steel, Type: Longcase Movement, Features: Calendar, Sub-Type: Brass/silvered Dial, Clock Type: Longcase/ Grandfather Clock, Style/ Origin/ Theme: Georgian
