My aunts kitchen clock

About 1964, my great aunt was moving from our family home that we occupied for over 150 yrs in Newark, New Jersey. I was about 10yrs old and for helping her pack, I was permitted to take whatever I liked. So, dolls and Christmas ornaments, old toys and my grandfathers uniforms, gun and backpack, and jewelry that I had admired.
This clock was always on the kitchen wall between pantry and and kitchen.
Dark green carved birds sitting on the top of the chrome base with shamrocks on a swivel arm, so the face of the clock could be turned in any direction. The clock face is shiny green, the back says Gueblin Lucerne 8 Jours, 23890.
I have kept this with me for years, the clock is separated from the birds at the base of the birds and top of the clock, it needs to be connected. However the clock is working and keeps perfect time.
Also, I do not want to leave this clock with anyone I don't know, I believe the birds are Jade, but really not sure.
I would take a picture, but I'm not sure how to download.
