Hi. My name is Diana.


I apologize for the wait. Often different experts with different specialties are online at different times.


Is your clock marked at all? If there are no mark or numbers on the dial or inside the clockworks, in all honesty, it's next to impossible to ID a clock. A value can be estimated based on the style and age, but with no marks, there's really no way to tell you who made it.


If you're okay with that, I'll be glad to help provide a value. If not, I can pass your question on to customer service for you.
