Hi. I have this clock that has been in my family at least since 1923 because my Dad was born then. He was the youngest son of 15. Our clock works great, have the key but ours also has the glass " barometer" on the front. We were told if it was cloudy that it nay mean snow and that we may not have school. It has so many wonderful memories all through the generations.
