The First is a German Wall Clock that we bought when we were living in Bad Kreuznach, West Germany---a country that no longer exists. In fact all of the clocks are German. This style is sometimes called a German striking clock. No idea as to its age, would guess turn of the century around 1900-1920.
My Second clock is sits on our desk. Again, no idea as to age, perhaps a bit older than the first clock, so 1880-1900.
My Third clock is a "gold" mantel clock in the French style, but it too is German. It originally had a black wooden stand it sat on and a glass dome, both of which have been lost or broken through the years we've had it. He should be holding a long rifle in his hand and it's around here somewhere. It's about the same age as the second one.
The Fourth clock is a Cuckoo clock. I know it doesn't particularly look like one. It is wooden with a pewter dial. It has a wooden pendulum, but it's put up somewhere. It's quite old, maybe mid-1800's.
My Fifth clock is our Grandfather clock and it stands at the foot of the stairs. It's an open-well Grandfather and probably dates from the late 1800's to early 1900's.
Do we run the clocks? No, too noisy, too much trouble, too lazy. Though each year I ask Mac to get the Grandfather clock going and he always agrees to and always forgets. But that's ok, I know what time it is, the cat tells me.
