Mahlon,
This clock is about 8′ tall. Fortunately our foyer ceiling is 9.5′ so the height is not an issue. The cases are very thin and fragile, so it’s not surprising there are a lot of movements without cases.

This clock was imported by a guy in Chicago about 10 years ago or so. It was supposedly completely gone through by a clockmaker before the seller purchased it, but he’s only used it for decoration, so it hasn’t run since he purchased it.

Albi, where this clock appears to have been purchased originally, is in south-central France, not too far from the Spanish border.

Anyhow, now I just need to work out the logistics to pick it up. I’ve got a friend that’s passing through where it is with a covered trailor, but I’d like to inspect it myself before taking posession.
