....think I've answered my own questions if this is a 'modern repro' to mark the 'BiCentennial'?...hmmm, if'n it is, it's still beautiful!!!

Jim, You are correct it is not an old clock. It was made in 1975/76. It is also not a reproduction. It was styled after earlier designs, and its construction and carving was based on work done earlier. The final design elements were original and intentionally not made to reproduce any individual early clock.

Attached is part of an ad for the clock when it first came out.
