All I know about this clock is that my grandfather asked his sister to bring it back to the US from France some time no later than the late 1980s. My impression is that he had already brokered the deal and his sister was just taking delivery. Besides what the pictures show, that's all I know. My grandfather was, from what I can tell, a fairly discriminating antiques collector, so I'm assuming he felt the clock was (or would be) worth something. Since he passed away, the clock has been something of a white elephant, passing from family member to family member. I'd like to get some info about it so I can be informed when seeking out an appraiser/dealer in order to offload it--if it's even worth enough to bother doing that. Any guidance is welcome.
