Customer Question
I have a Waterbury...

I have a Waterbury Black Mantel clock that was my great-grandmother's. It has a date on the inside that's Sept 13, 1989. It is in working order, only a couple of small marks and I'm wondering what it's worth and the best place to sell it. There is also a cuckoo clock and a Sessions mantel clock - none of which we have room for, so sale seems the only way to go. Can you help?

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 the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Can I send a photo?
