My name is***** have been dealing in and appraising clocks for over 40 years, and I can help you with this. The plaque is consistent with the clock's style and age late Victorian 1870-1880. Black onyx and marble. Assuming it is running this would sell for $500-700 at auction and insurance value is $1000.

Thank you,
