Im looking to find out some information on this clock. Its been in my family for as long as I can remember. My grandmother was the original owner and when she passed in 1974 my uncle took it. He passed two weeks ago and I asked for it. I know when I was a kid it worked and there was a key for it which is now gone. Im looking for a bit of history on my little friend as well as maybe a place to get a key for it? Its in beautiful conditon on the outside, no scratches or cracks or dings that I can see but Im no expert. Inside the back door where the workings are is a label.
On the label it reads
8 day keywound clock with A 400 series chime movement. The number 6110 is stamped on the label so Im assuming its a serial number of some type. Also MEDBURY GW is stamped on the label. There is a number 8 stamped on the wood as well.
On the brass movement is engraved Made in Germany for Seth Thomas Clocks Thomaston Connecticut and the same 6110 is engraved there as well. Im guessing that means its the original brass movement.
Any history or links for me to read up on would be greatly appreciated as I seem to have hit a brick wall as far as finding info out.
