  1. Thanks again @Always"watching". Like your nickname too. Very clever.
  2. Hello @Always"watching" and @nevenbekriev. Thanks for you input. It is a fusee movement and works beautifully. Would there be any markings on the actual fusee anywhere that I could look for that might be of any value. Slightly separate to me original question, when I acquired the clock, the movement did not work. When I looked, the chain had been disconnected.

  6. Hi. I've had an old mahogany wall clock for years. It used to be a headmasters clock in a victorian school. Would anyone know what the markings MASH mean. The face also states ILFORD. Presumerably this must be the clockmaker but I've never been able to find out. Thank you.
