I have a small long case clock (grandmother) with Smiths Enfield, Made in Gt Britain by the Enfield Clock Co Ltd. On the back of the cabinet is the numeral '13' twice. There are three key holes on front of the clock. When was it made and approx. what is it worth?

Thank you
Susan Mackenzie.

Hi Susan. It's very hard to identify something by a description alone and you should contact a horologist to look at your clock and advise you. See our question of the week on Horology for further information: http://museumvictoria.com.au/discoverycentre/discovery-centre-news/horology/

I have just purchased a small Enfield mantel clock made in England. The chime is three hammers on tuned tubes. Would like to find a pendulum for it.
