If you own an antique wall clock, you are probably curious about where it originated and when it was made. Antique clocks are often passed down from earlier generations or bought as collector's items from an antique store, but they often have a lot of mystery surrounding them. The first wall clocks came from England in the 1700s, and mass production began in the 1800s. The more you know about your clock, the easier it is to determine its value. Determine the company name or clock manufacturer. Often the name will be engraved or printed on the face of the dial or the back side. Sometimes there will be paper labels attached to the inside of the clock that show the name.
Thanks and Regards
I know Im "tqlking to the spam" But clockss are one of the most faked antique item after art pottery and silver.
You really must look at all the clues that something of an age would provide. (Patina, workings, dial face numbers, paint or printing, wood condition and any wear on surfaces and works)
