case uprights have been extended, the clock work and case are possible associated, minor surface distress and tarnish to dial with some small losses at blacking, saddle board appears to be a good match, shrinkage crack with infill and small corner patch at case door, feet replaced, probably original finials, cracks and minor patch at one side of hood
