I found this clock on an auction and i fell in love with it right away.
It is a complete wreck and i won't do anything to it, just hang it on the wall
like a piece of art.
Could someone tell me something about the age. It's always interesting to know.

Thanks for showing, Gote.
I do admit without shame, that I don't know what it is.
On first sight, it's an old BF movement, 1790s, perhaps.
But, there are several details that don't fit in with BF clocks, IMHO.
I'm somewhat puzzled and thinking, it may be a clock from Bohemia or
Saxony Ore Mountains region (Erzgebirge).
Hope, some others will know more about it. :?|

Thanks, It's up on the wall now.
I guess that it can be from 1800-1850 something and made by an unknown
local clockmaker.
