90 year old clock in a beautiful authentic wooden case. Very rare to see clock of that age in that kind of condition. And even more rare to know which vessel exactly the clock belonged to. Maxim Gorky (famous soviet writer) whose name was chosen to name a big soviet crusier that was built in 1938 – 900 crew members. You can see a picture of an actual cruiser attached. More about cruiser history below. Maxim Gorky (Russian:) was a Project 26bis Kirov-class cruiser of the Soviet Navy that saw action during World War II and continued in service into the Cold War. She saw no further action in World War II. A major modernization was begun in 1953, but the navy reconsidered the cost-effectiveness of the refit and work was cancelled in 1955. Maxim Gorky was laid down at the Ordzhonikidze Yard, Leningrad on 20 December 1936 as a slightly improved version, Project 26bis as designated by the Soviets, of the first pair of Kirov-class cruisers, which were called Project 26. She was launched on 30 April 1938 and was completed on 12 December 1938.  For most of the rest of the war she was blockaded in Leningrad and Kronstadt by Axis minefields and could only provide gunfire support for the defenders during the Siege of Leningrad, for example she fired 285 180 mm shells on 4 September 1941 and 701 rounds during the Krasnoye SeloRopsha Offensive in January 1944. The cruiser was awarded the Order of the Red Banner on 22 March for her “exemplary fulfillment of combat missions” and the “courage and valor” demonstrated by her crew.  She also bombarded Finnish positions as part of the 4th Artillery Group during the Soviet VyborgPetrozavodsk Offensive in June, firing a hundred 180 mm shells off Kuokkala on 9 June. Maxim Gorky was repeatedly, if lightly, damaged by German air and artillery attacks,  but her only extended refit occurred over the winter of 194243 when her upper deck was reinforced with 37-millimetre armour plates. She was relocated to Kronstadt pending a refit at Shipyard No. 194 in mid-1953 and transferred to the ships of the Kronstadt Fortress on 16 June, leading the naval parade up the Neva River for Navy Day in July. The refit, which began late that year, was planned to include a complete overhaul of her machinery while her radar, fire-control systems and anti-aircraft guns were to be replaced by the latest Soviet systems. Torpedo bulges were to be fitted which would increase her displacement by 1,000 metric tons (980 long tons), with consequent penalties to her speed and range.
