    I think it has a replacement dial, handmade (not original hands) and a replacement bottom glass. It is called a "Sharp Gothic" and looks to be an eight day runner. Could you give us the height so we can narrow it down?

    Your clock is the larger variety of sharp gothic clock. This design was available for sale around the 1860's to the early 1900's.

    The Sharp Gothic was a popular case design. Almost all American clock manufacturers (Seth Thomas, Welch, Waterbury, etc.) had Sharp Gothics. I would recommend that you try to purchase or otherwise access the clock books authored by Tran Duy Ly.
