Found in the attic of a house I bought. Previous gentleman from midwest of dutch origin, no surviving relatives. I do not know how old or origin. The second picture is the label on the bottom of the clock. I don't know what language

Unsolved Mystery

Help us close this case. Add your knowledge below.

    I think it is in Czech or Slovak.

    Can't see the entire clock case or any details. The three winding holes suggest that you have a chiming clock which would play parts of a chime melody at 15, 30, 45 and 60 minutes of each hour.

    If we were to see more detail, we might be able to help, but it doesn't look like any American manufactured clock case which I'm aware of....

    please provide the following:

    Any and all information printed, stamped or labeled on the dial, movement, case and pendulum. This includes names, trademarks, serial/model/patent numbers and dates.

    Measurements of the dial and case. Please take measurements at the longest, widest, and deepest points only.

    Well lit photos of the entire case, with close-ups of the dial, movement and any distinctive decorative feature(s) or labels.

    Please note if the case appears to have a simulated or "faux" finish.

    Any provenance information.

    This information will be very helpful, but it still may not lead to a definitive model or date.

    Beautiful woodwork by the way!

    A lovely clock. it may be French? These very rare. This was probably made in the mid 19th century.

    I will take more pictures and measurements, thanks for the input.

    I added two more photos. One of the back mechanics of the clock and a second of the pendulum . Hopefully this helps someone identify the clock.
