    Hi
    I bought this clock off of eBay a few weeks ago
    And I am wondering how old it is and where you think it was made
    On the face it is stamped "foreign"
    Thank you for helping

      This clock mostly likely originated in Germany. Date wise, I would guess 1930s/1940s. Clocks which were manufactured outside of the country where they were being sold were required to put the word 'FOREIGN" on their products.

      And if anyone knows
      What would this clock be worth and what
      Type of wood does it look like it's made of
      Thank you

      I've seen British Clock Makers case German Movements before and "Foreign" was the designation but I didn't know it was a Europe wide convention.

      The main wood looks like it may be quarter-sawn Oak to me. Not sure what the lighter accent wood may be.

      Check eBay for current market prices. Here's a link which may be helpful: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&LH_Sold=1&_udlo=&_udhi=&_samilow=&_samihi=&_sadis=15&_stpos=17331-2501&_dmd=1&_ipg=200&LH_Complete=1&_nkw=english+westminster+chime+clock&_sop=3

      You can also browse other online auction sites like ArtFact/Invaluable or Liveauctioners. Once you register, you can search their archives for hammer prices.
