Customer Question
I have a very...

I have a very old small wall clock. I find no identification on it. Very much in need of repair. I am not looking for an appraisal, just identity of the type or maker and appx. year.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Since the owner of the clock ran a mercantile store in the late 1880's and early 1900's, I almost feel it may have been some sorta promotion item. The glass door is round and swings out on one simple hinge. It is a veneer. And outside the ring of time numerals there is another circle of numbers beginning with 1 and going to 31.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

It is totally about 24 inches tall, simple with no carving or decorative interests.
