I have a old mantle clock made of marble by Kay & Co,

Customer Question
I have a old...

I have a old mantle clock made of marble by Wright Kay & Co, Detroit. The clock weighs 20.5 lbs. It has a sticker that reads: Valley Clock Service,***** N. Hollywood, Ca. then it has the following : PO 1-2280 and then 1-4660, the 4660 number is ***** in pencil.. On the rear entry cover there is the following: C121082 or WC121082. I would like to know the value and where I might be able to auction it off? Pictures available.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

That is all the information I could read except that inside rear opening below the steel rings is a round symbol with letters that I can not make out.

I'd love to help, but I am not seeing any photos.

I will do my best without.

This is an 1882 marble mantel clock, exact maker unknown, retailed/sold by the jewelry

and gift store of Wright Kay and Co of Detroit, Michigan. I will add a photo fo the inside of the store.

This clock has a current value of $300 to $450 retail if it is by Seth Thomas, Ansonia, or one of the other big names clock makers of that time.

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.
