Hello Everyone,
Just picked up this really cool clock at an estate sale and have no idea what it is. The clock has no markings and stands a little over 8". The clock is made of marble and brass with the middle part painted. Please chime in if you have any idea what this is.
Thanks

The best I can say from the photos is that I would call it a 'vintage novelty clock'. Please remove the back cover so that we can see the movement and it might then be possible to identify the maker.

Just unscrewed the back and it looks like it's a swiza movement

SWIZA, the trade name of Louis Schwab Co., one of the largest makers of alarm and other small clocks.

I don;t know if they made the whole clock or just the movement - others may know more.
