"I'm in the process of repairing an Eli Terry clock with wood movement and mahogany on pine case. The door is reverse painted on glass and it has one remaining of the three finials. I've purchased two replicas which are fairly close. It was given to one of my great grandmothers as a wedding gift in the 1850s and, according to family lore was not new then. The case received a lot of damage when it was in storage during WWII while my father was based in Ottawa and overseas. I live in an 1830s Regency bungalow west of Toronto so the clock is appropriate to the house. What would a typical shelf for it look like?"
