Dating longcase clock cases

Only the clockmaker signed the clock, and usually, just on the dial. But, from about 1700, they increasingly ordered at least some of their parts, whether it be hands, spandrels, gut line etc, from a parts supplier.

Originality is critically important, both in confirming the age and in determining the real value of the clock.

We also need to consider that names had errors: clockmakers often couldnt spell; similarly, engravers couldnt spell either, or made errors in engraving.

The use of certain letters and characters also evolved as did the spelling of names and places.

This is an important question, and one that the owner does not seem to understand, nor its relevance to the first two questions.

Theres actually a third question that is rarely asked, usually deliberately (or ignorantly) ignored, and a subject that the owner would often prefer not to investigate. Is my clock authentic and original in all respects?
