    Need help with value of a grandfather and grandmother clock - Ridgeway and Viking

    I inherited a Ridgeway grandfather clock and a Viking grandmother clock from my late great uncle. The grandfather clock still works, although we stopped winding it because it was a bit loud. Before we stopped, the center cylinder was falling faster than the other two, but it kept perfect time. I can tell the mechanisms are Ridgeway from the center of the clock face, but the body of the clock is not matching anything I've seen.

    The grandmother clock is not working, but it has a plate stating that my great uncle made it, so I'm assuming that is the case for both clocks (he was a master woodworker and make several furniture pieces within the house, so it's easy to believe he made a clock housing).

    We are looking to sell both clocks, but I am unsure how to value a clock that was custom made? Any help would be appreciated.
