    Hi,
    I would very much appreciate any help in identifying the Country of Manufacture and AGE of this CLOCK CASE and how it was used?? It has a fixed bow on the top and I presumed it hung from a clock statue?? This case was found at a 1960's watch and clock repairman's estate.

    Brass case dimensions are 78mm max diameter and 28mm max height. Looking at the rear of the case there is a slight remnant of a gold gilt finish. There is a sliding cover / hatch retained by a rivet that covers the key wind hole. The upper bezel is press fit. The hand painted enamel dial is mounted to a brass plate; perhaps the symbols at the 3, 6, 9 and 12 are fleur-de-lis, French?? Interesting, there is a small hole centered under the bow in the side of the case. There are 3 very small holes in the side of the case at the 1, 5 and 9 o'clock positions, presumed for mounting the movement with small screws.

    Thanks for looking!!
