Just a teapot that was my grandmother's and it isn't worth anything much. I don't use it but it's in pride of place on the hall sideboard.

I have a clock which was handed down since late 1800s never got it priced but I did get all the insides cleaned and working correctly about 4 years ago still going strong, it looks something like this without so much on the top,

I am beginning to think mine maybe should have that top on it as mine is the same but the top of mine is flat but it has a groove across the top which the front of that top piece would locate.
