My brother sold the farm we both grew up on on Friday. It had been a while since I was there. Our Dad had lots of clocks. He gave each of us 4 kids a shelf clock or a wall clock. I have a Barnes and Bartholomew wooden works clock that runs good. Anyhow, I saw my brother's clock was running and accurate. I didn't have time to ask him about it, however.

Can you tell me the maker of this clock. Is it a 30 hour wooden works clock like mine is? Thanks.

It’s not a wood works clock. It is an eight day time only wall clock of a style often called a store regulator. It might have been made by Sessions or Gilbert, but other manufacturers also made this style.

1915 would be close. It's way to new to have wooden works. That one has a simple time only movement, some had a calendar and/or a striking movement.

Based on the crown piece in the picture, (a better picture would help)I would guess it could be a Gilbert Observatory model, which was my first clock. Mine was made in early 1906. It is a good time keeper and I inherited it from my grandfather.
