Passed Down

To be honest,I know very little about my clock prior to receiving it from my grandmother's estate. Supposedly it was passed down to her from her mother, but I honestly don't know if that's actually true.

The only thing I remember was that since I was a little girl, I always remember this clock sitting on top of my grandmother's TV (console TV of course).

I've moved this clock around with me since I inherited it... from home to home, from city to city. It no longer works- it hasn't since I've had it.

I've just recently begun to wonder where and how it came to be and also if I should pay to have it repaired. It's not necessarily my style, but it seems interesting to me to possess somthing that's older than I am (or I assume it is).

Any information availabel would be greatly appreciated. Front and back view pictures are included. It's obviously a Wm. L. Gilbert Clock Co. clock- that much is still visible on the label on theback. Other than that- you can only really make out an uppercase "M" branded into the back panel of the clock. There is a city on the label- "winsted..... U.S.A." It also looks like it had a name/ title,and the only thing left is ... 13.
