The Franklin Mint Miniature Clock Set of 12 Mini Clocks
ESTATE FIND: This is a set of 12 miniature clocks made by The Franklin Mint. I purchased these at an estate sale and I know nothing about these. 10 of the clocks are in perfect, mint condition. The Grandfather clock has a piece missing from the top and the Gothic clock -in the 4th picture- has come apart and I don't know how it goes together. There was also a package of 22 button batteries that I will include with the clocks. Since I don't know anything about these, I looked up the information below:
