      Hello Hembree. Welcome to Collectors Weekly.

      You have a Wuersch Chiming Mantel Clock manufactured in the style of a Bracket Clock. It probably has a mechanical 8-day, three train German Chiming Movement (possibly a "Hermle"). The lever on the right side of the dial allows you to silence the chime or select one of three different chime melodies. Westminster is the standard (four notes) , Whittington (eight notes) and St. Michael (also eight notes). To determine which setting corresponds to which melody, you can hear samples of the three different melodies here:

      "Robert F. Wuersch, born in Switzerland, moved to Fall Rivers, Massachutes in 1961. He originally crafted Art Enamels on pure copper and fine wood, after which he founded the Wuersch Manufacturing Clock Company. He continued to work, throughout a serious illness, and passed away in 1995".

      These are wonderful clocks but keep in mind that the mechanical movements do require periodic repair and maintenance like any machine. This can entail anything from inspection and oiling all the way up to a major overhaul or replacement. If you intend to operate your clock, I would suggest that you find a good clock shop to have it looked at. They can tell you about the mechanical condition of your movement and you can go from there.

      If that solves your mystery, please check the little "Mystery Solved" box in your listing. If you have more questions, please let us know.

      These clocks really do have a "presence" in a home. Enjoy your new Chiming Mantel/Bracket Clock. I hope it gives you and your family many, many years of enjoyment.
