Nice one Russell, is it westminster or is it a dual chimer.
Wonder how old it is, nice find and in great shape.

I say the same as Russell for age as well. The styling just looks older of the case.

I believe I have that one in the catalogues, lates 1930s, perhaps.
I'll have a look, when I have access to my database.
Matter of fact, the general style appeared again around the 1970s, history repeating...

The clock I had in mind from a 1939 Kienzle catalogue is not an exact match,
but the changesof some styles from the typical tambour "humpback" to a more
baroque style was already plainly visible.
Yours may be a very early post WW 2, but I can't verify that.
Note the hands of the 1939 clock.

Looks pretty spot on to me, some minor differences, Thanks Jurgen

The clock came yesterday and it is running great, and the chime sounds great too, it is a nice bim-bam strike sounds like a Seth Thomas Brookfield
