I posted this in the "What is this clock worth?" section last evening with quite a few views but no responses. I contacted Ms Dyer at the library today and she suggested posting it here to see if it gets more exposure. I seem to associate a monastery in California with this clock for some reason but I really don't know why. This clock hung on the wall of our carport in the mid 1960's when I was old enough to tell time. The rule was; be within sight of the house and be home by 4:00 to eat dinner (my father worked at NASA and was on a pretty early schedule). If I was not there I had no excuse. It has been stored for years. I came across it and wondered if anyone on the message board could tell me anything about it. The wheels are wooden with lantern pinions. The dial is approximately 26" across and 34" tall. I don't know the age but I do not believe this is from any sort of kit. I have the hands that need some work and the weight my dad had with it.
