I have had this clock for 25 years. I got it from an estate sale so I have no idea how old it was at the time of purchase. It's been sitting on my desk for that long and my wife has not liked it for 25 years. I finally replaced it with a horse statue. Any general info would be appreciated as I know nothing about the clock . I just liked the look of it. Over the years I never winded it up . I just did and it works fine .I was going to pass it along to my daughter but she doesn't want it . Same taste as her mom I suppose.
