1800's Gustav Becker Clock
(Battle Creek, MI USA)
Gustav Becker Clock
This clock hung on a wall in a log cabin belonging to my husband's aunt and uncle. We could tell just by looking at the clock that someone had tried to fix it, but instead messed it up.
We inherited the clock and, of course, want the clock to work and we found just that person who did fix it and it is now is working fine.
There is no visible name on the clock. Only when being repaired was the name Gustav Becker found. He forgot to write the number down, which I presume was the model number which could reveal the year made. He did remember it starting with 13.
This clock is also referred to as a "blindman's clock" because of the unusual chime. It has 3 weights and a very interesting pendulum. The front door on the case has beveled glass, which should also date the clock. It is 31 1/2 " long
I am obviously interested in the year made where it was made and the value of the clock.
Some pictures are available above.
