This clock was handed down to me from my grandmother, who was born in early 1870's. The word GERMANY is stamped in ink on the back panel. Stamped in ink on the inside of one of the small door on one side of the house is what I believe to be the manufacture date OCT 31 1906. Written in pencil on inside of the other small door on opposite side of the house are what appears to be the numbers 10/30/06 and I believe the letters PP. Guessing again, I'm thinking the date of the person who built the clock. Dimensions: height- 17 inches, width- 17 inches, depth- 6 inches. The body of the clock is a light stained wood. The clock itself is brass with steel wires. There are three steel chains and three 8 inch pinecone that weigh at least 5 lbs. each. There are three bellows: two are six ½ inches, one is two ½ inches. Missing is the roof carving, two small carvings on the lower front, and a two 3/4 inch x 1 inch wooded strip on the lower left side of the face, as you look at the clock. Shown are three pictures of my clock and one picture I found on the internet of a clock like mine that has been restored. Unfortunately, that clock was unsigned. I would like to know the manufacturer, verify the date 1906, the estimated worth, and an address of where I might get the clock restored. Appreciate any information. Thankyou.

    Very nice clock! Try searching at: http://www.nawcc.org. They have a business directory link where you can look for clock professionals by geographic regions. Good luck.
