I've always liked these old case clocks and found one for about $40 today. It runs, strikes (albeit not regularly) and seems to have fair age (Patent of Feb. 11, 1879).
The paper says this is a striking 8-day Dandy Line; the clock even appears to feature some dandelion-like plants on the glass. LOL.
I am hoping to know the age of it, and how best to remove the face (just by the screws?) to see what might be wrong in the workings and then clean/oil it.
Also, it does wind, but is it the clock's left or the clock's right that winds the time? And is it the minutes hand I move to change the time?
A great New Haven Clock Co. piece for the collection.
