A local used furniture store owner recently dropped this clock off at my house. He said it was from an old hotel in the center of town. He was cleaning out the attic and thought I might like it. Well, he was right, I do like it, but I have no idea what it is exactly. It looks like a clock that may have been in the lobby of the hotel. The gut string on one side still had tension on it wrapped around the fusee-like wheel. There are gears and springs everywhere. I am curious about it's function, as well as it's maker, and any other information I can find. Can anyone help me with this clock? I have many more pictures if needed. Thank you, Duane.
