Description

It's an antique grandfather clock that my mom purchased on a buying trip to England in the 70's. It's been in my family's home since then. It's in great shape, although the clock mechanism hasn't been serviced in a long time, so we don't use it to keep time, it's just decorative. Dimensions are 76h x 14.5w x 10.5d.

Thank you! So I know that my mom bought it in the 70's, but it sounds like you believe it to be a reproduction from the 70's, and not an antique, is that correct? If I were to have it serviced, how much would you think a fair price for servicing would be, and how much do you think that would add to the value? Thanks!

Yes you are correct - it's definitely a good quality 1970's reproduction. I am so sorry but being based in London I am not in any position to reasonably estimate service costs in US but believe it would add a bit of value & try and get it going yourself with winding etc but no idea about potential costs I fear but best of luck !
