Customer Question
I have a very old...
I have a very old clock it has a almost unreadable tag on the back . All of the things I can read I will tell you. I can make out the word MANUFACTURE below that is a partial word that says WAS or G. A date 1821. That is it. It is either a balloon clock or a ball clock. I am not educated in clocks. The wood is very dark and it looks very old. It has a pendulum and a little glass door that looks onto the Pendulum and the face of a bell. That is about it.
