I just got this Forestville jewelled clock. I think it's 1960's but I'm not sure about who makes the movement or how best to maintain. Also not sure about black lever on chime train(is it just for transport?). New to clocks so excuse my ignorance! Thanks for any help.

Ah! Good catch! I didn't even see that one. Clarification is required I suppose. Looking at it now, there are three different parts that could be the object of discussion.

Hey thanks guys, yes it was the lever on the left. I thought it was a lock but just wanted to make sure. Looks like lock for hammers and bottom lock for chimes.

I have pretty much the same clock, and mine needs a service one day, loks to be around same era as this one. Black piece on the bottom is for when transporting clock and you dont want the noises from the chime bars, as the clock is jostled.
