My wife and I inherited this clock from her Great Aunt before she died. I love it. I looks great in our Early 20th century Victorian house. I don't really care how much its worth and have no intention of selling it. However I would like to know more about it. No one who has visited our home has seen one like it. The clock is in a metal cabinet with doors on both sides. The ornate decoration around the face is stamped brass less than 1mm thick. Its a double striker meaning the bell rings on the hour and 1 minute past. It appears to be an all brass movement and it is driven by two 5 lbs wieghts and has a large ornate pendulum about 35 inches long. The on the face are the words Salson and "a St. Flour" in french type. I've searched the web for both these terms and have found little. I can't find any other markings on it. Does anyone know anything about who made it or how old it is.
