1700s Rare James Douglass Chertsey English Long Case/Grand Father Clock (Kalispell Montana)

circa 1770ís Extremely Rare Antique, James Douglass, Chertsey English Long Case/Grandfather Clock by: James Douglass of Chertsey England. I believe it to be oak case with good patina, brass dial with curvilinear design brass framing. solid brass pendulum. Height: 75.1/2ins x Width: 18.1/4ins Depth: 9.7/8ins (All sizes approx and measured at widest point) I have taken many pictures which should enable you to establish the condition of the clock, however you will notice the front right hand side pillar has the base missing. (Easily replaced by a competent craftsman). The case is lockable with a key The clock mechanism is complete with all the original parts including the chime/bell. This clock is illustrated in Antiquarian Horology, volume 11, page 196. I am also given to understand there is a clock similar to this one in Chertsey Museum Surrey in England. I am open to reasonable offers or trade?
