Customer Question

We have a pillar-scroll, I think, mantle clock given to my husband from his mom. She said it was given to her by her grandfather.
The clock face is white with Roman numerals; on the top rim of the face it says
PAT. Feb.11.1879, at bottom of face , it says Made in U.S.A.. I do not see any trademark stamp on it
It has a glass door with a horseshoe with some flowers around it.
I am trying to find out if I should insure it or not.

Hi. My name is Diana.

Please keep in mind that even though a rating box may pop up, there's no need to rate me until I give you an answer.

I was wondering if you'd still like help with your clock. If so do you have any pictures of it?

If your message box has a blue box that says "attach file" or a paper clip icon you can use that to upload photos.
.
Here's another way that works really well:
.
Go to http://www.imgur.com.
Click "Computer".
Double click the image you want to upload.
Click "Start Upload".
When the image appears on your screen, just copy the link from that page and paste it on this page.
.
If those don't work you can email them.
.

Email the pictures to***@******.***

They have to be sent from the same email address that you used to sign up Answer (which is usually the email address you use to Log In). It has to be the same email address or JA won't recognize it and they'll just delete them.

Make sure you tell them that you've tried everything and that you're trying to get pictures to me (DianaF) in antiques and give them your screen (customer) name and your real name.

That should do it.

Thanks,
Diana
