This is a mid-18th century, likely 1765-1770, Japanned quarter-striking longcase clock by Joseph Eayre of St Neots, England.
Typically these are musical as well, so it's possible the clockworks have been replaced. The case is original.
At auction, I would estimate the value of this clock in the range of $10,000.0 to $15,000.00. For insurance purposes, it should be insured at a retail replacement value of no less than $20,000.00
