English tavern clock, ca. 1880. The dial says Thomas Moss, London, but the dial and the movement are not original to each other – one has been replaced. The mahogany case is 53 inches long with an old finish and nice patina. The door lock works and there is a key. The 16-inch dial is painted with no chipping or significant wear, behind a thick glass in the brass bezel. The hands are appropriate. The weight-driven movement is time-only, as you would expect, and is running without issue. It is not fusee; the brass shell weight is 13.5-lb. The back of the dial has posts for mounting to a movement with pins, but there are no mounting holes on the brass plate movement. I did not remove the movement to see if it was signed on the back, but a signature is uncommon. No label or internal markings. A nice-looking tavern clock. $500-$800.
