    Please post a photo of the movement, then perhaps we can say more about the maker.

    That is definitely one heavy looking clock. Most likely it will have a roulant movement, which were made/assembled by a variety of french makers. They are high quality and built to last.

    It looks like a French movement. The maker's name is probably on the little round stamp which is hidden by the pendulum rod. You need to unhook the pendulum and post a clear photo of the little round logo.

    The name on the dial is likely the retailer.

    Nice French marble clock with a pendule de Paris movement that is in need of a service, the stamp on the backplate should reveal the maker.

    Very nice piece. Past neglect is obvious. Will be very nice when you get it serviced and cleaned up.
    I bet that little sucker is heavy. Do not set on a $19.99 table from Walmart :)
