Description

"That’s a clock that belonged to Wallace White and Wallace White had that when he left the army, the Missouri state cavalry so it’s probably from around 1860-something to the 1870s... [the clock] was in Uncle Lawrence’s [Berry] house, it belonged to his grandfather. And that was in his house, a beautiful, beautiful piece.

It still keeps very good time. It has the pendulum... it has the little whole in the front is a keyhole for the key that winds the mechanism inside the clock and has two swinging pendulums in the back... one single pendulum rather that also marks time and strikes the hour."
