Grandfather clock- Tempus Fugit Adina
25 November 2023
Description

I inherited this clock and have looked through for labels or stamps. The last owner purchased in the 70’s and loved it ever since. Great condition and does have the weights & pendulum in tact. The only fault is the bottom wooden base broke when a weight was dropped - photos attached. I’m not an enthusiast and don’t have much of an idea
