Late eighteenth century American tallcase movement, dial, seatboard, weights, pendulum with the dial engraved "Simon Willard, Grafton" and the pendulum engraved "Warranted By Simon Willard, Grafton, 1780 For Eldbridge Gerry".  This is an eight day duration movement with engraved dial, phases of the moon, seconds hand and calendar. There is no case as it obviously was lost in storage at some point in time. The weights seem to be filled with buck shot or pebbles and are correct Simon Willard type weights.

Dial 12" by 16 1/2" (approx.)

Everything appears to be in original condition. The moon wheel has a little restoration from a few spots where the paint flaked. This has not been done recently. The movement is complete and will run and strike. This has been in storage for quite a while. The name Eldbridge Gerry on the pendulum is of a Massachusetts luminary of the eighteenth century.
