Some of the many possibilities that prevent the pendulum from swinging:

The weights or mainsprings are used to power the antique clock movement which runs the clock.  The power from these travel through the movement train to provide impulse power to the pendulum.  Something along the way could be stopping or robbing the clock movement of power.  It could be dirt, dried oil or a broken part.  The clock repair person would need to first examine the movement to see any obvious problems.  If no broken parts are observed, a complete disassembly and overhaul of the movement may be in order.  A trained clock repair person will know how to do this overhaul.  Along the way repair problems may be revealed.  The clock repair person will make all the necessary repairs in keeping with accepted methods in keeping with principles of the National Association of Clock and Watch Collectors and American Institute of Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works.
