I'm sorry I was late putting up these pics. I had to go to night shift and I have been too tired to mess with anything extra. I hope the photos are good enough; it's kind of hard to photograph glass without getting glare or shadows. By the way the jeweler who cleaned the clock called it a "kitchen clock" and said they were actually usually placed in the kitchen. I think it is a tall clock for a kitchen but its funny, I could find no open shelf/area to place it and finally found the only place it "fit" (due to the height and need for accesibility to wind it), was on the bar in my kitchen. I was able visit the old home Grandmom Corrie lived in and the kitchen was unbelievably small. But my mother remembers it as "big". I really could not envision this clock in that kitchen. It gave me goosebumps to be somewhere this ancester lived. I have always felt a great love for my grandmother (Malona) and was particularly interested in her mother. She pulled out an old "photo" of her to show me, then let me take it home to do a portrait from it (I am an artist). As I was coming down the hall I was walking toward a mirror with the picture facing away from me. My heart "jumped" because as it was clear we looked very much alike. I never thought I looked like anyone in my family and finally I found that I do. I was 16 at the time. The picture was taken around 1883-1887. Today, I think that is another reason I love this clock.
