This clock was in my grand parents house before they passed in the 60's, and it was a gift to my grand-mother and was in there dinning room,was said to be 70 yrs old then.
I just got it from my mothers estate this month.
It chimes once for each hr and once for the 1/2 hr.
There is a paper tag on the back base but much of it is gone, there is a date of 1880 and looks like November on another line.
On the right hand bottom on the clock work base is the number 4 1/2
on the other side near the top is (diamond with ST) Made in
this is above the 1/2 hr bell
I have not seen any with a bar thur the lions head mouth for the key.
Would like help dating this great clock.
