Almost certainly a C.L.H. - though so far impossible to confirm.
With a centre height of around 1.5" and a between-centres capacity of 5" it was obviously intended for larger watch and clock work. Of very unusual configuration, the bed was formed with two vertical faces at the front and back with a large single V-way at the top and a mirror image of that on the underside. Where the bed passed through the headstock the section changed to round, with a long round extension piece protruding several inches further- the purpose of which is not known though it might have been to accommodate an auxiliary pulley system to give a great range of speeds.
As found the lathe was held in a nicely-made, fitted wooden box complete with a screw-feed compound slide-rest assembly - the top slide being in steel. Although the cross slide lacked a micrometer dial, the swivelling top slide was so fitted, though it was far from satisfactory having lines engraved at well-spaced intervals and with hand-stamped digits.
However, it could be zeroed and the locking mechanism was of the "face type" that prevented the setting from being upset at it was tightened. The tailstock had a substantial spindle that could well have been locked by a proper split-barrel arrangement. that could well be original.
