The clock face has been repainted somewhere along the way because you can see the old globe lines which were not repainted.

I can not find anything on the name, T. Leadbeater, on dial.

The name on back of dial says Walter & Hughes, Birmingham; they are not any markings on the case. From the first picture you can see the back of the case is gone, I have added thick cardbord as a dust cover.

I recently had work done on the clock to get it back in order and is working nicely for the most part. The clock shop that worked on it said when it was repainted the artist goofed, it is a 14 day clock movement but he painted 7 day spacing so it moves 2 days for every one.

He also said it has had quite a bit of repair work done on it over time and he had to re-do alot which was done incorrectly. The glass is not original but the rest appears to be.

I am not looking to sell it, only find out more about it, I plan to keep it in the family for a long time to come. It was my grandmother's and I love the look and sound.
