    Welcome to the board,

    Your clock is very nice example of such clock, sometimes called a lamp clock or night clock. Yours is missing the glass oil reservoir that fits on the top, held by the pierced brass circle, and the wick. Polished up, the brass would look very fine.

    Your clock also would have had a brass edge surrounding the dial. I don't know if it is the angle of the photograph but it looks as if the shaft which turns the dial is bent downwards.

    As I expect you know, the hand is fixed and the dial revolves. The mechanism is wound by the knob at the back (but I am not sure that yours is original, it looks as if it might be a replacement, being a knob rather than a winding handle).

    I am not sure of the date, but I would estimate around 1860. However, there are some on this site who have done research on Farcot clocks and may be able to give a more exact date. Perhaps they will be along soon.

    As to value, I cannot help.
