Please help me to get this right. I've tried to pull together what has been said about other clocks like mine. So, here goes.
I believe this is an early 1900's Sessions Calender Clock. It came from my grandfather's meat market. These clocks were most likely used commercially for markets, depots, offices and the like. Logos were often reproduced on the front glass with gold leaf.
They required little attention as they only had to be wound every eight days. Being very handsome clocks with a mellow sound, they survived through home used. Some, like mine, had their logo removed. Mine still has it's original the gold border on the glass.
