English tavern clock, ca. 1890.  A 58-inch oak case with an old/original finish.  There are reeded quarter columns with brass caps and plinths in the mid-section; the contoured base has a crack that is stable.  The dial glass is old but likely not original, as the bezel holding it in place is a replacement. The dial is a painted replacement on Masonite; the hands are elaborate with a second hand, which is not well secured.  The 8-day, time-only movement is driven by a 10-lb cast iron weight, with a steel rod pendulum.  It is running.  The waist door lock is rusted and the door is held shut with a Velcro closure.  $400$600.
