    Grand Sonnerie Info Please

    Looking for any info on this clock. The dial says" Andreas Muller in Prag". Is a silk thread suspension. Is missing the calendar function, dial & hand. Could only find one reference on an " A Muller" becoming a master in 1726. This is a customer's clock & he is interested in any info, thanks.
