    Very nice clock. It's not really a "Grandfather" clock. Grandfather Clocks (aka Tall Case, Long Case, Floor, or Hall Clocks) might be secured to the wall to stabilize them but their weight is supported by the floor.

    Your clock is simply an ornate wall clock, or perhaps a "Regulator" although regulators were typically weight driven for a more consistent power source. It appears that your clock is spring driven (please correct me if I'm wrong).

    Perhaps one of the clock collectors here might recognize your clock on sight, but if not, (As Jerry Maquire might say) "help us, help you".

    Please provide the following:

    Any and all information printed, stamped or labeled on the dial, movement, case and pendulum. This includes names, trademarks, serial/model/patent numbers and dates.

    How often does it need to be re-wound?

    Measurements of the dial and case. Please take measurements at the longest, widest, and deepest points only.

    This information could be very helpful, but it still may not lead to a definitive model or date.

    Regards
