I inherited this clock, and would like to know more about it. My father told me it is French, from the mid to late 1800s, and from the few similar clocks I found online, I think that's correct.
I can't find any writing on it, only a stamped serial number on the movement, and a hand engraved number on the case.
It is running, and so far keeps reasonable time.
I'm confused about why it has two winding-stems - maybe one is for the movement and one is for the chime?
Any tips on preventative maintenance, winding procedure, or anything else?
