Welcome to JustAnswer, I am Rarewares and I will respond back as soon as I research your question.
Please use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures of the item and any marks, labels or writing.

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
i did send pictures... did you get them?
Expert:  rarewares replied 13 days ago.

No, there has been a glitch in them not riding along with original inquiries.

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
how can i send you the picture?
Expert:  rarewares replied 13 days ago.

I have three options and you can choose whichever is easiest for you -

1) I'll give you these instructions for adding them here, just in case you'd like to try again.

The feature works best if you add one pic, hit send, then do the next.

2) If the Add Files feature on your screen still does not work for you,
you can go here and use the green NEW POST button then paste the address
back here in the text box and I'll be able to see all of your items.

3) If that is too much bother, you can email pictures to***@******.*** and put 'for rarewares in antiques' in the subject line.
Use the same email that you used when creating your account so that they will recognize you.
These do not arrive instantly, so thanks in advance for some patience when sending this way (might be overnight).

when do I get a reply?
Expert:  rarewares replied 12 days ago.

I am unable to find a match for this item. I will opt-out and allow another expert to answer.
They will see our conversation and your photos. I am not able to respond once I opt-out. Good luck!

My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.

I'm unable to read the name on the clock face. Can you tell me what it says?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
it says Franz Kardlaczek on the face
and also Wien
Expert:  Judith-on-Antiques replied 11 days ago.

I can find no information on this clock company. The clock was made in Vienna, prior to 1921. Do you want me to find a value based on comparable clock values?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
are you sure of this fact? made before 1921? also i mainly want to see its value in order to sell it
Expert:  Judith-on-Antiques replied 11 days ago.

I am sure. Do you want the appraisal, or should I Opt Out? I'll do whatever you want.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
it seems that the clock may not even be worth the amount i need to pay for the appraisal...
Customer: replied 11 days ago.
i will try to find out locally
Expert:  Judith-on-Antiques replied 11 days ago.

Fine. I'll Opt Out, which will open your question to all Experts. Wishing you the best of luck.

There should be a door on the back of the clock, if you open this you should be able to see the clock works aka movement.
