Wood trim parts for a Tall Case Clock, perhaps from 5 1/2 to 6 1/2 Feet Tall, OR, these parts could also be used to make a large Mantle Clock, using only the top section pieces (listed before the // marks), using a key wound or quartz chime/strike movement. If you are constructing your own case from plans, these would save a lot of hunting for the right hardwood, the right styles, measuring, cutting, and mitering. These parts came from a Tall Case Clock that the 'head' and the 'base' were larger than the 'body' and that the base was a little larger than the top. The face frame is 17 1/2" tall overall, including the finial. It is 15 5/8" across, from 'shoulder' to 'shoulder' and 13 5/8" across the body. It is 12 5/8" from the shoulder to the bottom. (Picture #1) There are two 9 3/4" trim pieces (not shown) that finish the trim at the top of this frame on the sides. The trim at the base of the "Head" has the 2" 'ledge' pieces and the trim pieces that go on top. That frame measures 15" wide and 10" deep. (Picture #2) The door is 13 5/8" tall to the top of the arch and 10" wide. The HINGES are attached and included (but not the screws that attach the door to the frame.) The GLASS is included. (Picture #3) // There are 3 pieces of trim for where the waist meets the bottom 'box', that are 13 1/2" by 8 3/4". (Picture #4) The 'foot' trim is 15 1/4" x 9 3/4" and is 3" high maximum. Note that these pieces are cut so as to form 'legs'. (#5) (A clock should have four hidden feet that are adjustable {NOT included} so the clock can be plumb in all directions.) IF YOU WANT, I will include some trim (not shown) that could be a design rectangle on the waist (if you do not use a waist door). This trim is 3/8" wide. 42" long and 8" wide. (IT WILL BE CUT IN TWO for shipping.) Please tell me.
The mounting board inside the top frame is 3/8" plywood which as been glued in place. Perhaps it should have been just screwed there so the whole movement could have been lifted out, but the finial block may be in the way. The center hole is 7 1/4" from the top of the board, 4 1/4" from the bottom and 4 3/4" from the sides. It is 3 1/4" across the wind holes, the middle one is 1 1/8" below the center hole. and the side holes are 1 3/4" from the center hole. All measurement as close to 'center-to-center' as I could see.
All of this is 3/4" hardwood, currently finished reddish dark. IT NEEDS TO BE TOUCHED UP OR, PROBABLY, REFINISHED. A few mitered ends need filling. The measurements are from the longest point, such as the outside tips of a mitered joint. These trim pieces may have the remnants of the old plywood case to which they were attached. ALL SMALL NAILS ORIGINALLY USED ARE STILL THERE! They were originally countersunk, filled and color matched. You can cut them off or pull them out through the wrong side to put new ones where you want them to be or back them out to use the holes again. I left them in so you could make the choice. This will be carefully packed so no further damage will be done and to protect the glass.
[I have a Dual 'chime/strike' pendulum (included) movement (Non-Seiko), for a Tall Case Clock, or, a Seiko Dual 'chime/strike' Quartz movement for either type of Clock, either one for $48 if you wish it to be added. No additional shipping.]
