Thank you for the help so Tanya. It is very much appreciated. Mike

Thank you for your patience. This clock is wonderful and looks to be in good condition done in French Neoclassicism This was the period of conscious use of Greek and Roman forms, gold gilding was used to bring elegance to the pieces and this shows all of these points. The age is 1820-1840 period and the value of this clock is 1200.00 if it does not work and 3200.00 if the clock works and keeps time. Beautiful piece. It would take a master clocksmith to do any repairs to keep it original in structure having the silk suspension. You would not want to have the clock restored unless they can do the delicate work required.
