    Has anybody ever seen a clock like this? I can't find even one on the internet. My husband inherited it years ago and we are just curious about it. Thanks!

      It is called an ogee clock. If you search under "ogee clock" you will find numerous similar examples. This style was popular from about the 1840s- 1880s.

      The glass was revere painted and there were many different styles available. The native american is not a typical painting. Photos of the interior showing the back will help to determine if it is original to the clock.

      Additionally, photos of the interior with the label may help to determine a more precise date on your clock.

      Although I hate to disagree with Scott, actually this is a Mantel Clock model generally known as a Column Clock for obvious reasons. Possibly a Column & Cornice from circa 1870 although there were models called Column OGs. Perhaps that is what Scott was referring to. Although the logo on the dial face is faded, you may have a Seth Thomas. This model was popular in the mid through late 19th Century. Weight driven, the cases were tall enough (about 32") to accommodate an 8-day movement. As mentioned by Scott, we would need more information to be more precise in our efforts to identify your clock's maker, model and approximate date of manufacture. Please provide the following:

      Any and all information printed, stamped or labeled on the dial, movement, case, pendulum and key. This includes names, trademarks, serial/model/patent numbers and dates. The photo of the back of the glass tablets may be helpful but I kind of doubt it. The paintings look like they were done very well and probably some time ago.

      If mechanical, 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.

      Well lit photos of the entire case, with close-ups of the dial, movement and any distinctive decorative feature(s) or labels.

      Any additional provenance information from your husband's family.

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

      Thanks for sharing your heirloom with us.

      Thanks for the correction bruce!

      I have an ogee mantle clock-- don't know why I called this one an ogee! Obvious differences with the columns.

      I appreciate the ACCURATE update!

      Hey Scott. The general shape of these clocks can be very similar to the OGs. We just happen to have a Column in our Collection so it kind of jumped out at me is all. Regards.
