    Hi All.
    This is the only photo I have of this clock.
    It has a marble base and it all looks to be brass. About 20" tall and face dial is 9.5".
    I'm hoping some one can help identify it.
    Thanks,

    Carlos

    Hi,

    It is very difficult to provide good information based on a single photograph, and without seeing the movement. It doesn't look particularly old to me, and could be a modern reproduction. Is it mechanical?

    Regards.

    Those are the same questions I have. It's a private auction and there no way to contact the seller with any questions.
    I'll try to see if I could contact the seller.
    Thanks

    The screw that holds the minute hand looks rather new to me...

    Yes, looking at it again, I'm pretty certain it's a modern reproduction, likely battery operated. Another thing that strikes me is the "patina" of the metal. It looks very fresh and shiny, although deliberately made to look old.

    Thanks for your input.
    I've requested more information on the clock. Let's see if the seller will comply.
