Got this one from a friend who said it had been in his family back in the 1870’s. His great Aunt had it and she died in 1910. Need info on same.

Hi,

You have an American Seth Thomas (as indicated by the ST logo on the movement) octagonal gallery clock. It would have been new in the 1870's when your friend's family originally acquired it. Hopefully someone will be able to advise you as to the exact model.

Regards.

These are sometimes known as "Marine" or "Lever" wall clocks or some combination of Marine Octagon/Lever clock. They are not really rare, but also don't necessarily turn up super often. Thousands were made in all sorts of various case types (plain boxy octagon, ogee curved sides like yours, rounded over top edge, papier mache, ornate carved ones, and ones with mother of pearl or painted designs).
