Nice clock! It has an oval shaped embossed brass front and the fancy embossed brass pendulum which dates it to 1850 or later. The movement does look clean, but I believe it is genuine. If not it is a very good copy, as far as I can see on the pictures! It has an anchor escapement and I guess a slotted suspension spring in a small brass fitting, brass drums for the weight cords and 2 trains all corresponding to morbier movements of that period.
Unfortunately I can’t see the complete case (and I am not an expert!). You would be lucky if this is an original decorated pine case, because they are rare, certainly in a reasonably good shape.
