    Clock

    Hello John, Happy New Year.
    Can you give me any information about this clock. It belonged to my Aunt. It kept good time until the spring broke when I was winding it up. It's sentimental value really, but is it worth getting it repaired?

    Hi JACKR,

    What you have is a Vienna spring driven wall clock in mahogany made around 1900. Clocks like this were made in the millions.

    Clocks like this retail for about £275-£300.

    One thing come to mind when you look at your photograph of the clock .......... the top is missing
    Yes there shoud be a carved top. Maybe a carved eagle or a carved horse or just a carved design.
    + there should also be a finial on the bottom of the clock.
    These missing parts reduces the price of your clock by two thirds.
    Jackr if the clock was working it would be worth just under £100

    all the best
    John
