      You clock is "No. 2" in one of Gilbert's "Lake Set" assortments. Gilbert boxed and sold only full sets of these six different models, four oak, two walnut:

      One Set "Eries" (6 clocks, all wire bell strike) $25
      One Set "Ontarios" (3 wire bell and 3 wire bell alarm) $26
      One Set 'Michigans (2 wire bell, 2 gong, 2 alarm) $27
      One Set "Hurons" (6 clocks, all alarms, wire bell) $28
      One Set "Superiors (4 gong and 2 gong alarm) $29

      These clocks date from circa 1895

      Yours looks like it may be made of Walnut. The paper dial looks pretty "new" to be from the late 1800's so it may be a reproduction dial.

      You can do an internet search on Gilbert Lake Series Clocks to find other examples from the set. In a quick search, I didn't find a No. 2 though.

      Hope that answers your questions

      thank you for the information, the clock i have has a metal dial, so someone must of replaced it.
    4. Bruce99 Bruce99, 3 years ago
      I think you have a paper dial which is glued to a metal backing. That's normally how they are done. Dials were also painted on, but I don't think that was done for these models.

      You're welcome HEDVAL. Glad I could help with this clock. Good luck with your French Clocks. Those can be notoriously difficult to run down. Information on the movements could give you a ballpark as far as the date of manufacture. The French did things a little differently...of course. They mass produced movements and many small companies or businesses cased them.
      Regards,
      Bruce
