    Help ID family grandfather clock

    Hi all,

    I have a grandfather clock that has been passed down in my family for generations. There is not much known about it other than a few dates from the late 1800's written in pencil. The clock has been worked on in the past 20 years to get it back in working condition. Does anyone know anything about this clock or what routes I might go to find more information about this clock. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you,

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Hope these don't come out sideways (been having trouble). Photos are from my 2004 edition of Encyclopedia of Antique American Clocks by Robert W. & Harriett Swedberg.

    Appears there are only slight differences in face. If you can't make out print in photo it says:
    Silas Hoadly scarce eight-day pull-wind grandfather clock w/tin canister weights and cast-iron pendulum bob, striking wheels in front of front plate & escapement outside backplate (of movement). ca. 1820, 90" high to top of finial. $1400.

    Hope this helped. Beautiful clock!!
