I got hold of an old marble clock case and I would like to install a clock movement in it. I don’t know what was in it before. I can see the remains of an adhesive used to hold the dial in place, but no mounting holes are drilled on the inside of the case for attaching the movement. Does anyone know how the manufacturers installed their movements in these types of cases? Thanks.September 14, 2014 at 9:27 am #59386aruthaParticipant

Pictures would definitely help. Just a guess is what I have found is on marble and metal case clocks that the movement is mounted to the dial. The dial would have a couple of long legs on it and is mounted thru the front of the clock. It would have a back in which screws would go thru and screw into the legs coming off the dial holding the dial and movement in place. I have worked on a awful lot of marble clocks and have never seen screw holes for holding movements. But without seeing your case just a guess.
