Need help identifying a mantle clock

by Ben Hyde
(Blue Bell, PA)

It is an old worn mantle clock. The key wind works. There are no clock maker IDs on the face or movement.

The top of the clock cabinet has a carved face of a crowned, smiling king with a "V" for a nose and no discernable eyes. There is a carved bird on either side of the king's head facing the king. The image immediately reminded me of the nursery rhyme "Sing A Song Of Six Pence". The carving is not ornate - the wood face is flat and the images are simply etched into the wood, i.e. - not a 3D carving.

The clock is around 14"H x 10"W. Clock was donated to Habitat For Humanity. Any help with ID would be appreciated. Thanks!
