This is a French Rococo H & F brass mantel clock that dates to 1880 in a Louis XVI style. It would have had a matching set of garnitures (candlesticks, candelabra or vases) for either side. I have added a picture of a garniture set. This clock has a current value of $1200 to $1500 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com,
Ebay and letgo.com (local).

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.
