Thanks PM,

Yep chaps she's a beauty isn't she!
I think the pattern on the inside of the door is glue which would've had felt or foam to dampen the sound of the mech - strange coz it's extremely quiet anyway.

Not sure that I'm too much of a fan of the crazing, however like the front and the mottled colours...

Sterling idea that man!
I did the same with a school woodwork project as a kid. A classmate & I built a magicians' guillotine - 6' tall and the blade passed right throught yer neck - coz it was 'magic'!! We took turns looking after it then I grew up.....
Middlehurst & Sons obviously went to enormous trouble with the Coronet. Orig. parts and their own name in the main frame casting and yes, a definite pre-cursor to the Clubman/Clubmaster/Aristocrat from Ainsworth Dental.

Re:: Tree-frog's earlier post, I just spun the old girl around and yes, glue - but having seen another foam-lined bandit, the foam breaks down and chokes the clock/ mech.
Hence removal.

And as for selling her (to coin a Badpennyism) offers on the back of a fifty.. :D
