Found this in my Mothers house. It has the word "Drink" just below the number twelve and the coke script logo above the six. I know it has been on that wall since 1966. Any one know more? rj34953@yahoo.com

    Unless it's battery-operated (from the 1970's), this looks like a Gilbert clock (1916-1920) and worth $1,500 in Petretti's 11th edition Coca-Cola price guide. The 12th edition may have it priced even higher.

    Ray is dead on. However reproductions do exist. Won't get that, if that being the case.

    Thank you.

    It looks very old and real to me. I opened the glass door and the key to wind it was in the wood case. I did not wind it. I moved the pendulum back and forth and I could hear the clock tick. It is a very nice piece. The script logo on the face is very faded.

    Again, thanks!

    Looks like a sessions 8-day srike that may have been somewhat refinished. If you push the pendulum and it goes some on it's own that's okay. Keep letting it do its thing with a little of that kind of help to unwind the spring. Put the key in and give it a couple of turns and see what happens. No instructions for setting the time pasted on the back? Is the glass slightly wavy?

    My mom has a clock very simular to this one it doesn't have "drink" printed on the glass it drove her nuts and she didn't like to hear it tick ( it really was loud), but i remember it when i was 8 years or so, i am now 56 i remember my dad buying it at an auction. looks pretty old , just was wondering if i could find more info about it. It's about 36 inches long I always loved it and may take it home with me!

    I have two clocks like the ones your talking about, I wind them 14 turns every week and they work just find. Hope this helps.

    Hey, I also have this clock, but it dates from about 1901. Have a picture of it in my grandfather's meat market about that time. Shortly thereafter, he went into law enforcement and became cheif of police between 1911-1918. The clock ended up keeping him company in garage where he would fix things.

    I forgot to mention, it didn't advertise Coca Cola. It had the meat market name and a gold scroll border. My grandfather took the name off but left the border.

    Ray is right. It is a gilbert from about 1920. Looks totally correct. Face is very faded, and paper has a lot of rubs from the hands being moved around the face to set the time. The gold lettering is gold leaf and should look fairly crude. If it is perfect it is a newer glass. Have had a couple of these before. This one looks right. In today's market 1,500 is a bit high. You'll be lucky to get 1000. Nice piece.
