    This clock came from my Great Grandmothers house. The only thing we knew about it was that Grandpa brought it home and Grandma didn't like whatever was on the face of it so she cut the words 'God Bless Our Home' from a magazine and glued it on the face. We could see bits of red around the words she had put on but we had no idea what was underneath. When my mother gave me the clock, I wanted to remove the cut outs but had no idea how. I found a man who offered to restore it for me, and we were all surprised to see Coca-Cola underneath. The only other thing I know is that I was told Grandpa brought it home in the early 1900's.

      You have a Gilbert Clock made for Coca Cola circa 1916-1920. Originally this would have a glass insert with IN BOTTLES 5c. These sell in excellent condition with glass insert around $500 to $800. Nice story and history of the item.

      Thank you, this is a piece my son has chosen. I will print this and put it inside the clock for him. I'm certain this will make him appreciate the clock even more and also have a record of it's history. I forgot to mention that my mother believed the original face of the clock was of a cricket which was the reason Grandma had covered it up.

      You should indicate "Mystery Solved" in your listing since Edisonfan nailed it.

      Thank you Edisonfan for sharing your knowledge and for taking the time to do so. This was the first time I have posted anything and so I would also like to say thank you to Bruce99 for educating me on the proper etiquette for using this site.
