Welcome to the board.

It is a German clock, made by Kienzle, probably in the 1920s. Is it missing a hand ?

No I've got it. it looks like someone pushed on the clock too hard or something or wanted too tight it's kind of bent a little bit in the clockwork do you know any kind of value I could place on this thing or where I would look up it's value I guess?

Welcome to the forum.

Your best avenue for determining value is probably completed sales on e-bay.

You now know what you have - a Kienzle tall case (grandfather) clock, circa 1920.

What type of value are you requesting - resale, insurance or estate?

Regards.

I have added a Value tag to this thread maybe someone will give you a
value. I do agree with new2clocks ebay completed listings is a
great place to determine market value.

How tall is the clock? From the photo I was thinking it was smaller than a usual grandfather clock, more the size of a granddaughter clock, but perhaps it was just the camera angle.

Resale value.
Keep in mind that a tall case clock will be expensive to pack and ship and this could adversely effect your sales price. A local sale, especially to one who can transport the clock on their own, could be the best in terms of the price you receive.

Also, I am not sure when or how you acquired the clock, but tall case prices have come down quite a bit over the last 10 to 15 years.

Regards.

Thanks for info. I got the clock for free and I don't necessarily want to get rid of it I don't know if it'll increase in value or not but I guess I wouldn't miss an opportunity.

It has to be close to 6 ft tall. I did have some one tell me that it was a granddaughter clock one time and I don't know what the difference would be I guess
