    anyone recognize this as a Finster or something similar?
    I have yet to see the clock for a signature.

    I don't see room for a pendulum. Is it an electric or quartz movement maybe?

    I was ignorant of Finster clocks and should have studied before saying anything. Electric movement would be correct for Finster but I do not feel the style is right. Apparently he was a preacher doing folk art clocks and selling them roadside in the 60's I now know. He was incorporating pyrography(woodburning) in all of his cases and the skull especially on this one seems to be a different style not to mention the lack of pyrography. I have no idea who might have made this. The following link shows images of Finster clocks. https://www.google.com/search?q=fin...4vjXAhWERCYKHXFGDpsQ_AUICygC&biw=1680&bih=917

    Looks like someone might have stuck a quartz clock in there...........
