Wedding present to my grandparents

I wish I had my digital camera with me. I'm staying at my Mom's house due to epileptic seizures. I'm told that the clock was second-hand when it was given to my grandparents (evidently very frugal gift givers!).

The clock in question is 13-1/2" tall with ornate decoration (is that redundant?) around the perimeter, except for the narrow frame around the door.

The clock is 8-1/4" wide in the back and 7" wide in front and 4" deep.

The face of the clock starts 3" from the top of the clock and has a diameter of 4".

The clock has 3 holes for winding.

1) For keeping the clock running
2) For the chime
3) I assume this one is to make minor adjustments to the timekeeping. I haven't touched it.

I had made a drawing of the clock, but have since found errors in the dimensions and am eager to learn as much as I can about it.

If you need more information, please let me know

Yours truly,

Mark A. Benell
