Well, I have no idea what this one was!
It reminds me of a French Picture Frame (Bullseye) Clock movement I once had
...but this chimed with two bells on the top (one strike rod and hammer is missing)
I suspect that this was once a wall clockAt some point someone added brass feet for it to stand on - certainly not original
I bought it 25 years ago with thoughts of making something really cool out of it,and alas, it is still as I found it - selling it as not working
If you will let me know what this is, I'll add it to the listingIt's heavy! Shipping is auto-calculated on 10 pounds from 32301If I can send it to your address cheaper using Flat Rate Priority, I'll refund the difference
Let me know if you want additional information or picturesThanks for looking

In response to a question - I don't have a key for this one, but using a key from another clock (marked 5.00mm) I gave it a wind and both springs are there and feel good. Regarding what looks like another hand remnant, it appears to be just that - an old hand from something that is being used as a junk washer. Both of the main hands turn and engage properly and trip the strike mechanism properly.

The Top and Bottom Plates are 6 1/4" x 3".
The distance from the bottom of the Bottom Plate to the top of the Top Plate is 6 1/2"
