Grandfather Clock from Berlin?

I wish that I knew more about the clock that sat in our livingroom for all my days growing up. I have recently inherited this clock and wish that I had more information.
The clock has the following brass lable on it:
Uhrmacher und Optiker
Berlin S:0 Melchoirstr. 31
The clock is painted black and is 6 ft. 2 in. tall.
It is very simple in design carvings. The top section where the brass face is has regular numbers and the carving is an oval shape with a small design with in. On both of the sides there are little sections that you can remove to access the gears.
The bottom section where the pendelum hangs has simple carvings near the top of the section of ribbons. The pendulum rod is wood with a brass bob.
Any help you could give would be appreciated.
