This 9 7/8 x 13 inch phase of the moon dial is made for the 451-053 movement series. There are 4 stand off feet on the back of this dial that attach to the clock movement itself. This low arch moon dial is a uncommon size and hard to offer sometimes for this movement. Dial quickly mounts to your movement with four pre-mounted posts.
New condition still in the original packaging.
These were purchased from Wisconsin Clock Co. in Clintonville, Wisconsin. They had a catalog out named "The American Clock Maker". They decided to close their business. They were a clock parts distributor and manufacturer of grandfather clocks and expanded into many different types of clocks and markets as well.

A little history/....In the late 17th century, the moon dial was added to most long case clocks so that people could plan ahead for when the moon was full and travel at night was not so hazardous.
