Antique Clocks/clock identity

Actually I completely disagree with the assessment of value. Yes, it is a German novelty clock, however, it is from the late 40s through 50s. It was part of a line of novelty clocks showing a vintage kitchen shadow box. They came with a lot of options. The similar one I have in my collection actually lights up. There are collectors out there the specialize in just these types of clocks. Yes as a clock, they leave a lot to be desired, but it's all about the whimsy aspect when it comes to collecting this type of clocks. Think of them more as a spot of entertainment rather than something to set your watch by. Your valuation for this particular one is between $70 to $150 to the right collector.
