Antique Clocks/Herschede Mantle Clock's Worth

Question
Good afternoon!  I was given a Herschede Mantle clock with the serial number 59477.  I have not been able to find the year it was made or of its value for insurance purposes.  Can you be of assistance?

Many thanks,

Susan

Answer
can you post a photo of the back plate of the clock showing the number? that may not be the serial number from Herschede but another maker who made it for them. that actual number does not exist in the listings ( it would fall in the 1926 era) so I am suspicious....

Comment - Of the 7 antique clock experts provided by www.AllExperts.com, you, Mr. Saunders, were the ONLY one who provided the correct answer that allowed me to solve the problem for which I sought help; thanks a million!!! Comment - On a scale of 1-10, I would give Mr. Saunders a 15 on each category. His responses were clear, addressed my questions and concerns in a way that even I could understand, and even sent a picture. He explained what I had and how to resolve the issue. I was amazed at how quickly he replied to each on my e mails. He shouldn't get a gold star, he should get a whole box of them!!! Thank you Mr. Saunders, I will keep you on my e-mail "speed dial". Comment - Ken answered my question regarding how to adjust the proper striking of the hammers on my Grandfather clock within a few minutes of my sending the question to him. He answered my follow-up question the next morning. I would rate him higher if there was a number larger than ten in the selection box. Thanks again Ken Comment - I RECEIVED AN ANSWER WITHIN AN HOUR.OUTSTANDING SERVICE.YOUR RATING SHOULD BE HIGHER THAN 10. Comment - This Man is Fantastic...there is no Scale for a Professional...like him...if there was...He'd beat the top of it...off.....and Smile....I could never ask for more ....this Man is TOPS.......100+......is his Score.... Comment - It's happening!! The clock has run for about 8 hours...I appreciate your quick response and clarity of directions. Thanks so much ! Kenneth really knows his stuff, he has the knowledge about where you can buy replacement parts and where to get repair service or do it yourself. I think I can fix it myself and receive the full value of my clock. He even sent me pictures of clocks like mine sold online so I could get a good idea of the value. Thank you Kenneth for responding so fast and making me feel so confident in repairing my own clock. I vote Kenneth Volunteer of the Year.
