My friend picked this clock up at a flea market and has been trying learn abouts its history. Place of origin, year of manufacture, things like that. He is a senior and not fimilar with the internet so I'm trying to help him. If anyone has information or can tell me where to find it I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

Hi, bhmanuel, welcome to the message board. If you could access the movement and take a picture of it, we may be able to ID it for you. Open the back door, or if necessary, remove it. Try to read any inscriptions on the movement. Looks like a great flea market find.:thumb:

At a glance it appears to be a French marble clock with visible escapement likely dating to mid to late 1800s but it could be American. A pic of the movement will confirm. I assume the attractive applied side panels and top decoration are brass.
