This marks the beginning of a restoration I am doing on my grandmother’s grandfather clock. The clock was purchased by her in the 90’s at an antique market near stonington, CT. We do not know who owned it before then, but the brand says it is a Gustave Becker. Both the face and the workings have the initials ‘GB’ however, when i showed our local clock repairs-men , he said that the case was not a traditional style for that brand. He thinks that at some point, the workings and face were taken out of a wall clock case, and then put into this case. I am curious what the original brand may have been for the case itself, or if the workings are original to the case after all. I appreciate all who can give me some info, if you need more information (with the little amount of information i have) just post it in the comments.
