GB Marriage (Grandfather)

Vyusti writes: 

I have a Gledhill Brook Time Recorders grandfather clock. The label says 23883, but I checked on your website and it has no record of a clock with No.23883. Is it a fake? If not, where can I find more details about the clock - its year of manufacture etc?

Thanks!

Thank you for writing!

Gledhill Brook did not manufacture grandfather clocks. This may be what they refer to as a marriage. That would be the movement and face of a Gledhill put into a grandfather clock case. This would not be considered a fake. These sorts of marriages often happen with these older clocks. You still have a very high-quality timepiece because the movement is such high-quality. We would be very interested in seeing some photos if you have time to take them and send them.
