I call this one the Hogwarts clock, no, this clock is not from a Harry Potter movie. It was made by the New Haven clock Co. in New Haven CT. The clock measures 23 inches tall, 11 inches wide and 6 inches in depth. Normally I don't go in for something like this but the detailing and carving is fabulous. When I got it home, I put it in beat and it runs beautifully and keeps great time. Some had the patience of Job to do all the carving on this clock. It does not appear in Tran Duy Ly's book, "New Haven Clocks & Watches", it is one of the earliest New Haven Clocks, the movement in the clock does appear in the book and dates the clock. One of the most interesting clocks I have ever seen.
