    Hi everyone,

    I have recently inherited in what I believe is a granddaughter clock (it is 5 ft in height), and do not know much about it. Any information, value estimates, etc. would be greatly appreciated. I am not aware of service history. If any additional photos would be helpful please let me know and I will be sure to post them.

    Thanks!

    Hi again Natalie. Interesting, I have this exact same clock in my collection. Yours is in nicer condition, my dial is in poor condition. I think the 1937 date is about right. There should be a switch that can change the chime,, mine has westminster and ava marie, what does yours have? Vedette clocks are known for having very pleasant sounding chimes, I'm sure yours sounds nice.

    My guess is that the worth is around $400 serviced. I got mine for cheaper but it needed quite a bit of service. I think it's a nice clock and small enough it will fit anywhere in your house. I do hope you keep it in the family.

    Hi Don and Natalie, thats a first for me seeing one like this. I have only seen wall clocks made by this maker. I would say 400 sounds about right to me.

    Granddaughter clocks are usually smaller, and have short pendulums. Yours might be closer in size to a Grandmother clock. Not sure.
