Inherited this clock from my parents who purchased in Düsseldorf, Germany at an Estate Sale in 1965.
They thought it may have been 70-80 years old at that time.

There is some printing / markings on the back of the clock face but difficult to read:

6N793
R4176
HW
JHECANRNA
MIT
GERMANY

(I don't know why I can't right the photos?)

Love a clean stately GF clock - can't help with mechanics but patina looks proper for the estimated age, beveled glass, nice carvings and accents.

My german clock goes cuckoo - :)
