Q: I’d like to know what this clock is worth. The elephant is made of metal and the base is wood. The clock pendulum swings from the elephant’s trunk. It says “Junghans” on it.

A: This is called a swinging arm clock because the clock face and pendulum swing from side to side. It has been made in different materials and sizes. It was originally made about 1910 with a movement by Junghans, a German clockmaker. Swinging arm clocks with other animals or people were also made, but the elephant clock may be the most common. Value depends on the material. Spelter clocks sell for $300 to $350; bronze clocks for $1,200 to $1,500.
