This was my Grandmother's clock. I do not know anything about it. Could someone give me an idea how old it is or if it has any value? Also, can anyone recommend a clock repair store in NJ? I do not know how to wind the clock....

Thanks

    This looks like a Tiffany clock and garniture/candlestick set, beautiful. I would take it to an antique appraiser first, this is classic Art Nouveau.

    Have you figured out how to wind it?

    I think you have a Reviere Studios Clock with grapevine pattern with a Seth Thomas movement & unsigned Tiffany.

    You have a Seth Thomas clock and candlestick set. It belongs to their Metal Mantel Clock series and is called the "Versailles Set" circa 1906. According to Tran Duy Ly it is an eight-day, Half-hour strike utilizing a Cathedral bell (or Gong). 4-inch porcelain dial. Etched metal on art glass. It was made in two finishes, Verde antique and Bronze. French sash and beveled glass. Height of clock is 12 1/2 inches. Base, 8 inches. Height of candlestick, 10 inches. Price of the set in 1906 was $85. It's definitely worth repairing/restoring. The set was appraised by Ly most recently (2005) at $1,450 for a mint example.

    You didn't mention what part of New Jersey but if you're still looking try Hugh's Clock Shop in the South Jersey area. Locations at Turnersville and Haddonfield. I found them on the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors online directory. Their website is at http://www.hughsclocks.com/ That's a very beautiful clock set. I hope this helps.
