Information about the maker
All the styling clues point to a dates around 1825-1835. Loomes lists a Nathaniel Cox listed in London 1832-57 who may be the maker.
The clock has been very well cared. The case is untouched and I'd prefer to leave it this way. There are a couple of blemishes which just add to the character. The movement has been professionally restored and is sold with a warranty. The dial 'ground'' and signature are original and nice and clear.
Cost of Restoration
There is a 3/4" peice of ebony stringing missing missing from the pediment which will replaced before sale.
