My great grandmother (who passed the clock to my grandmother) was born on April 8th 1906. The weekend that she died, the clock quit ticking. Several attempts were made to get it running and chiming correctly, but to no avail. Then I was born April 8th 1994. When my grandparents got home from seeing me at the hospital, they saw that the clock was ticking and even chiming!(although it chimes 15 minutes late) The clock is one of only 2 known to exist, the other of which is at the Smithsonian and doesnt run. I cant for the life of me remember the maker of it, but its approaching its 100th birthday and running strong. So basically, Im magic
This is a crazy story! Was anyone able to even place a price tag on something of that age, condition, and rarity?
I'm surprised that clock doesn't move household trinkets when no one is home. It's got creepy powers!
