30 Day Photo Challenge- Childhood Memory

This clock has been in my memory as long as I can remember. (As well as the glass insulator.)
I spent much of my childhood at my grandparents home. They adored me, and took me almost everywhere they went.  This clock was on their mantle all my life.  When my grandfather passed away, my Memaw asked me if I wanted to put it in my house, since she knew how nostalgic I was towards his things.  He used to wind it every night, but it no longer works. I know it can be repaired, but I am afraid to take it someplace, for fear that they will take out original parts and keep them, so I just look at it and enjoy it as-is.
