I am looking for any information about this clock. It has a Marti bronze medallian. I would like to know who made the marble(?) case, my research shows 1860 for the date. How about value?

    Hi! Is it marble or Belgian slate?

    Believe me, it's slate. There was a fashion in England for black after the death of Queen Victori's consort, Prince Albert in 1861. An entire nation went into mourning with their Queen that only ended with her death forty years later. Belgian slate became the 'in thing'. Notice too how the face of the clock is black. It's surely a matter of taste, but I think this is a very handsome clock; I like the combo of black and gold.
