This is a reproduction Eli Terry – Pillar and Scroll Clock. The case is new and the original wooden movement and dial date back to the early 1820’s. The tablet is “Emoglise” painted or reverse painted with a gold leaf boarder. Wood for the case is Sapelle from South America which closely simulates old growth Mahogany.
The last picture shows the wooden movement.

Nicely done, a great way to bring life to an old movement and dial. You clearly know these clocks.
The movement looks to be in excellent condition and hasn’t been slathered with linseed oil and graphite.
I’m a bit of a wood works enthusiast as well. (some say obsessed)
I’m guessing you are a NAWCC member and a Cogcounter?

The clock is awesome. I also have trouble getting pictures up correctly. I fix that by editing the photo with some app then save it again then post it.
