French mantle dommed clock-with musical box

Expert:  Appraiser Alan AOA C replied 3 years ago.

My name is Alan and I have been asked to assist you!
I am a Certified & Licensed Insurance Adjuster, Accredited AOA Appraiser, and an IRS Qualified Appraiser. It will be my pleasure to put my expertise, libraries & resources, and experience in the field to work for you.

JustAnswer has just sent me your question regarding your French mantle clock and music box. Thank you very much! I believe I will be able to help, but first I have to get a little more information from you.
What are the measurements of this piece, height and width?

Are you able to send pictures?

It would help to see clear digital photos with good lighting. Please show everything as a whole along with close-ups of any marks, signatures, damage, repairs, etc. Use the Macro (flower) setting on your camera for these close shots as clarity is of the utmost importance. The better the images, the more accurate your answer will be.

JustAnswer does not permit me to give you my email address so to share pictures there are a few options. There are two ways to get them to me immediately:

1. The paperclip icon built in the chat reply box here will upload your photos directly on your JustAnswer question page for me to view. On a computer using firefox or internet explorer follow these steps.

2. An offsite photo sharing website such as or, where you upload your pictures to their site then share the URL links with me here so I can view them. No account is needed.

If you do not think these methods will work for you, pictures can always be emailed through JustAnswer but there is up to a 24 hour wait before I receive them.

Any email will have to be sent as follows:
From: Your Email Address registered with JustAnswer
To: [email protected]
Subject: Pictures for Appraiser Alan
Body Text: The URL Link Address for this Question
Attachments: Up to 10mb in pictures

Please make sure you reply when you send pictures to let me know how they were sent. If you need additional time, or instructions, or if pictures will not be available for any reason, please let me know! I look forward to your reply. Thank you!
