The dial and probably the movement behind it, is late 18th to early 19th century. It may be English or American. There is probably a "false plate" connecting the dial to the movement, and this will likely have a name cast or punched into it, which will indicate the origin of at least the dial. There was probably also a signature on the dial, which may be visible under strong or black light.

real value will depend on the movement and MFG company. To give a value without knowing the facts for me would be wrong.

I sell many GF clocks per year. They can go $300 to $300,000 if one has a real rare GF clock. I always tell my help research is key
