Comments: This was the first clock in my collection, and actually is what started me collecting antique clocks in the first place. This clock stood on the desk in the den of my great aunt's house for as long as I can remember. I spent a lot of time at my great aunt's house growing up, and I always admired this clock. When she passed away in April of 1997, I asked my father if I could have the clock to remember her by, and he agreed. I knew nothing about this, or any other, clock, so I did some research. I finally was able to identify the year and the model of this clock, and in the process became fascinated with antique clocks in general.
