Hello

Can you open the clock to see what names are ***** ***** workings of the clock. It seems that several places made the Windsor Mantle clock, some were made in England and many made in the United States.

It says "British Made" but no other specifics, no year or anything. I cannot find its like anywhere on the internet. I have looked at several hundreds of mantel clock photos and found very few Windsors and fewer veneered with 15 min chimes/3 key wind. It seems like most of the makes gave each style a name. But I cannot find that either.

Was this on the inside in the works of the clock, or just on the face?

On the works inside.
