My French Barrel Clock of 1854

I have loved this clock for ages. I have had it for ages. I bought it from a Danish Clock restorer in 1991. I have used it all the time for the last 16 years. Now the clock is well over 150 years of age and still it keeps on ticking. I guess it would put John Cameron Swazy and Timex to shame. But this clock today resides in my library. It will be with me till I assume room temperature. I love barrel clocks from France.
