Hi from New Zealand. I have got this old clock operating again. It has had a very hard life, including being retrieved from a farm house fire in 1904, seriously dropped and case damaged... but it has been with the same family for 5 generations. Documented family history with it suggests it was brought from Scotland then taken to a remote farm in NZ in 1859. Question is: Could the clock actually be that old...1859....or is an earliest date estimate possible? While there is a lot written about Blinking Eye clocks on the Internet I have no real knowledge about them. Much I have read seems contradictory or wrong and also there seem to be many copies or reproductions. I am confident the family would be pleased if the historical record could be confirmed or corrected. Thank you.
