Enamel Urn Clock

I have very little information on this lovely piece. The little clock stand about 5 inches tall and the light green enamel is in perfect condition. The movement is an ordinary 16 size pocket watch movement. The chapter ring needs to be repainted. I have not run it for a while but I believe the movement is in order but needs a cleaning. I am downsizing and need to know what it is worth. Any help and interest would be appreciated.

These are Austrian and date from the 1870's to the 1880's. I had a client who used to bring me these to fix. He was paying up to $2,000 for some of them. Don't know if they are worth that much now, less if they need service and/or restoration. In my opinion, I think a safe number if you are looking to sell it off is to expect anywhere from $750 to $1000, as is. The rest is up to you.
