    You can't beat the sound of the chimes, I have an old Smiths here with Westminster and Whittington chimes, it has an acoustic box on it and the sound is LOUD and great.. Len
  4. Brocok movement escapement

    Lovely clock, had a few of these at sometime or other, some with the Lion on the flat top clocks.. I was wondering about the finish, probably been over an open fireplace most of its life.. Once cleaned the brass work will polish up lovely with brasso and waxed to stop tarnishing, not forgetting to peg out afterwards..Be good to see once cleaned and finished. Len
