Not only are kroeber clocks scarce since the company. Went out of business in the early 20.
Clocks they manufactured are even more difficult to find. 3 which measures 12 ¾ x 9 ¾ x 5 inches.

This clock is all-original and the cast iron case. There are areas as can be seen in the pictures. Where the finish is exposed and the cast iron body can be seen.

Would rate the body at a 6 or so out of 10. The dial is original as is the bezel and shows typical. Wear, but the glass is free from any chips or cracks. This clock is an 8-day. Time and strike movement, it is marked kroeber, and is does run. What is a bit different on these clocks is that it does. Not strike on the half hour, just the full hour. On the full hour, rather than a strike, it will play. Music as if it was a music box. It does work and strikes accordingly. Some tinkering that will need to be done. On the side changes the musical tone, and i have not been able to get that to. Work if this is the case. All i know is that one of the buttons on the side. Will cause the music to stop. The original pendulum and what looks to be the. I don’t think one will find one of these.
All-original and in working condition like this one anytime soon.
