Hello all-
I am hoping someone may be able to help me understand what I have. This clock was gifted to me by my mother many years ago. I am currently in the process of downsizing and really don’t know if this piece is of any value or simply a “family” piece. I have not been able to locate anything concrete in my searches. Also, i am unsure of it actually works- I have never tried to figure it out. I suspect it does not.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
Metal placard says:

The wood is stamped 515 with 15 underneath.


I’ve attached some pictures as well.
Thanks for your help!

Revere was tradename used by Herschede to market these electric clocks.

I doubt it has much value as the condition of electric motors and wiring is unknown.

This is similar situation for modern grandfather clocks.

Thank you Mr. Dervan. Doesn’t sound like there is much need to hold onto it! I have many things from my mother, this doesn’t hold much sentimental value either.
Thank you
