L Loeffier & Blackheath Read, Germany, 1870-1890

by Simon
(London, UK)

Although the clock I found in a junk shop is exactly the same as the make above, the one I found has no name on the face. It is a wag on the wall type with alarm.,

I bought it for £15 just to have as an ornament. Does any one know anything about this clock; is it worth getting restored

German Desk/Shelf Clock

German Desk/Shelf Clock

It doesn't have a key.

The design on the front looks like a 'koru fern' design (a symbol that represents New Zealand, where I live) The shape of the clock is very art-nouveau or art deco.

There is a hole either side for a handle maybe?
The letters L S are stamped into the wood just under the clock fitting on the back.

I purchased a few years back at a yard sale.

Grandmother's Anniversary Clock

by Judy
(Palmdale, Ca USA)

My Mother give me this clock and I have been trying some place to take it to get it running again.

I have the original German paperwork that came with the clock. My Grandmother got it for Christmas in 1954. My Mother got it when she passed away in 1962. I have had the clock for 10 years and haven't really had it out until now.

I have seached the internet but can not find anything about it. The face has Hallmark on it and the underside says Hernry Coelher Co, Western Germany with Heco on the brass workings. The paperwork in all in German so I don't have anyway of reading it. There is however a DGM1655180 which I beleive to be a model number.

In memory of my Mother.

by Jeff Davis
(San Antonio, Texas, US)

W. German Clock

W. German Clock

Two weeks before I was born in July of 1976 my Dad was deployed in West Germany in the military. This is when my Dad bought this clock as a present to my Mother. My mother just passed away on March 10th, 2009 in the early AM. I remember growing up to this clock's chimes like it was yesterday. When I and my five sisters had to take care of her trailer and personal belongings it was decided that the wall clock should go with me.

It has got what looks like the Boy Scout symbol between each Roman numeral. At the top of the face it's got a sliding switch that switches between Silent, Westminster, St Michaels, and Whittington chimes in that order from left to right.

At the funeral I asked my Dad how much and when he got it and he told me about the story of buying it two weeks before I was born July 13th, 1976 for around $500 US currency. I have not been able to find any markings other that West Germany right under the VI(6) symbol on the bottom of the face.

It is key wound with three keyholes, middle left just under the IX(9), middle bottom just above the IV(9), and middle right just under the III(3). I just want to find out more information of this clock and it's possible worth now days. It works just fine to this day.

I miss you Mom, this always reminds me of growing up in the house with you and everyone else.

Love,

Jeff Davis

Wind-up Clock

by Doyle
(Wisconsin)

Got this from my Grandmother. I'm guessing that it was made in 1972 or 1973 because it says 73 on the action and 72 is written on the inside door.

It chimes every 15 minutes and has three wind-up cranks. The key is very plain and has no distinguishing marks.

Five chimes are on the inside. The front panel says "Solar" and "Germany" is written on both the front and back. Inside, it says "FHS" (or maybe "FMS"?) along with "340-020". The logo inside is a picture of a clock.

Need information about this clock

by Rob Lee
(Maryville, TN)

The clock case and movement

The clock case and movement

Hello, I'm looking for any information
I can get about this little clock. It used to be my great aunts and she brought it over from Germany after World War 2.

She said that it had survived the bombing of Berlin, She did not know the age of it. She gave it to my mom & dad, and now they have passed it on to me.

I would like to know about how old, who made it, value. I recently had a clock guy look at it and he said it would cost $500.00 to clean it, definitely want a second opionion. I am currently in the process of restoring the case. It had sat around for many years collecting dust, and the brass tarnishing.

The movement will run for a while then stop. The only markings on the whole clock is some crossed arrows on the dial and the only markings on the movement is the arrows and stamped into the back plate are the numbers 141/36 & 200. It probably needs to be cleaned.

Any information anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated. I do have other pictures available for identification.

There is a 4 digit number on the back. I am trying to date this clock and determine the actual name of the manufacturer of the clock to determine its value. Also, it needs cleaned as it is tarnished badly. Can someone tell me what to use on it to clean it? Thanks a bunch to whomever can tell me....Gary

1788 German Wall Clock?

German Wall Clock

German Wall Clock

I bought this clock in Germany in 1974 from a retired GI who had a large barn full of old clocks. Later he asked if I would sell it back. He said a man from a museum had described it and they wanted it.

It's design was what made me want it, definitely not the color as someone had painted it white. I stripped off the paint and have a beautiful clock. The only identification is on the inside of the gear in which the hands attach. It has the initials "SX" and date "1788".

It has an 8-day movement. I put the knob on the door and I knew that I shouldn't have but didn't want to ,over time, ruin the finish trying opening it. I don't intend to sell it, so the door knob doesn't bother me. I would like to know the name of the person who made the clock.

If you have any ideas I would appreciate it.

Bought this in Germany last week and brought back to the states. Been searching the web to try to find out more about it.

I find a similar face on clocks ranging from the 1920s to 1950s. I also found a clock for sale that looks to have very similar clockwork and identical pendulum dated 1920s. I can find no marking or label anywhere on this clock or inside on any of the visible parts. It works great, keeps good time, sounds off every quarter hour. I wanted to include a picture of the clockwork but can’t seem to attach more than one picture. Thanks for any help you can give me! Joel

Clock back in family after 20 years

by Sammie Sampley
(Sevierville Tennessee)

My father in 1975 had a grandfather clock shipped back from Germany as we were transfered back to the USA. When we left there in 75 we were told it was 100 years old. He gave it to me in 1981 as a graduation present. But as a single mom in the 80's I had to pawn it.

Last month we found the guy I had pawned it to and after 20 years he sold it back to me!!! Now I have something spectacular to pass as a family heirloom. When my son saw it in my house he cried . It had been gone since he was 8 years old and none of us had ever forgotten it !!!!! God restores and gives back!!!

The next amazing thing is when we got it back the suspension spring was broken and my Dad had a spare he had kept in a cigar box for 30 years!!!!! Think it was supossed to be??? I DO !!!!!!

The back of the face has wings with a clockface in the center of the wings set on 11:35 n it has a 6 digit serial number I think it started like 109, I cant remember the 4th digit but the last 2 digits were 16. We had brought it back with us from Stuttgart Germany in 1975. Can anybody help me identify this clock??? If so please reply!!! Thank you

German Antique Wall Clock, who is it from?

by Craig
(Cincinnati, Oh USA)

I visited an antique clock shop in Cincinnati Ohio and was impressed with an antique wall clock that the owner indicated was from Germany.

When he removed the clock movement from the wood case, a brass plate was on the back of the wood case marked with a manufacturer named 'Muschle' or 'Musle' (not sure of spelling). I have been trying to find more information about this manufacture, but to no avail.

Does anyone know if this manufacturer even exists, or whether this is even from a German manufacturer?

Thank you,

A Ticking Tale

by Jane Alexander
(Oriental, NC)

Antique German Metal Clock

Antique German Metal Clock

I know this German-made ornate metal antique clock will not leave me. I have moved around a great deal and have rid myself of many possessions large and small but when it's time to go, my eyes see the clock, which has a home on my desk. It must go with me.

I know nothing about this clock except it looks strange, lonely and beautiful. I have not cleaned it for fear I will take away its memories. Dust has settled underneath the clock on its metal base.

I can wind it up with its winder on the back which has a tab that hangs from it. Then the clock ticks and ticks until it is time to wind again. The only marking is "Made in Germany" etched on the back.

I am intrigued with the little jewelry box or could it be an ink well sitting next to the clock. I wonder what has been in it years past.
This clock came to me from a first spouse's mother. She had the clock sitting on her bedroom bureau and you could hear it ticking as you entered her room. Sadly, I never asked her about it.

There is a girl's face molded on the ink well or jewelry box front and back with lots of flowers and leaves as well. The top was hinged but is no longer attached with the hinge. The clock's face holds black roman numerals with gold pointers and the clock itself has ornate flowers and leaves molded or embossed around it.

I am thinking the metal is brass, a dark burnished color. The clock and ink well or jewelry box both sit on a rectangular metal stand about 8x4.5 inches. The entire clock is heavy and looks very old. The highest point of the clock is about 6 inches from the table it sits on.

Now it's time to move again to another delightful setting on the coast. I eyed the clock on my desk, wound it up and listened to it tick. A pleasant emotion embraced me. I rummaged through my empty moving boxes and found one to suit and carefully wrapped the clock to travel to its next home. I smiled as I could still hear the ticking from the box. I hope it stops, as the movers might think it is a time bomb. Then again, this precious old clock deserves some great attention.

I hope it ticks forever.

What can you tell me about this clock?

Is this a Gustav Becker Clock ?

Gustav Becker Clock?

Gustav Becker Clock?

I am looking for information on a clock that I was told was a Gustave Becker.

The clock came from England? When I bought it, I took it to a clock shop in Alpine AZ. The owner there said this was a Gustav Becker and it was made by his grandfather.

He offered me any clock he had in the shop for it. His name was Cary G Merl. He owns "Ishkabibles And The Clock Works".

Since it is not signed and has no indication (Gustav Becker), I am not sure. I looked through all the Gustav Becker clocks on your web site and could not find it.

The center of the clock has a thermometer and the bottom is a barometer. I was told that the triangular shape of the movement was typical to Becker clocks?

I hope someone can help. Thank's.

German Wall Clock

German Wall Clock

Hi, We received this clock when my father-in-law passed away. He did some work for an importer back in the 80's and as payment was told to pick anything he wanted. He chose this clock. We had it repaired about 10 yrs. ago, and the repairman said it was at least 100 years old, from Germany, but he couldn't say much more about it.

It chimes the hour and half hour, and is weight driven with large pendulum. It measures about 58" in height, with carved top and bottom pieces, and is about 6 1/2 " in depth, and 16 " wide. It is dark almost walnut in color. we would love to have more information on this, and possibly a guess at its value.

Chiming Mantel Clock With "FOREIGN" Label

by Wayne Farmer
(Blaine, MN, USA)

Westminster Chime Mantel Clock

Westminster Chime Mantel Clock

This is a tambour mantle clock with Westminster chimes.

I found it in an antique shop in San Diego, California in the late 1970's. It's 16 3/4" wide, 8 1/2" high. The clock face has the word "FOREIGN" below the 6, and has 3 winding key holes. There is a slide switch at the 3 to select "SILENT" or "CHIME".

The clock face is covered by a hinged glass face. The interior works are engraved with the word "Foreign" underneath a little clock face with wings on each side of it. To the right of that is "12 cm" over "90,66".

I'd like to know when and where it was made.

This clock is high lighted by a rearing horse at the top of a very ornate clock frame. The clock hung in our grandparents home in Germany before giving it to their daughter (my mother in law) in the late 1930's I believe. It is a beautiful clock that chimes on the half hour and hour. If anyone recognizes this kind of clock by this description, I would really like to know more about the clock and its value.

I bought this clock in a general auction a few weeks ago. It was in a poor state. The case is in the style of American wall clocks. With oak vaneer over pine and a pine back and a glass paneled front door. It is currently in bits for restoration.

The movement is marked made in Germany under a logo of two wings with the name Kienzle above.

It has a fairly normal looking movement with a pendulum.

However it self winds with an electric motor powered from originally two batteries and now one 6 volt. I would appreciate any info about the clock.

Inherited German Wall Clock

German Mystery Wall Clock

German Mystery Wall Clock

Hello...we just inherited this old German wall clock, having never seen it before. We know nothing about it but would be very interested in anything you might be able to tell us.

As you can see from the picture it is a wood-cased, round clock, with a hinged glass front for winding, Roman numerals and gold coloured hands.

A rope passes under and round the body of the clock and up to a brass fixing disc to enable it to be wall-hung.

The makers name inside is partly obliterated but the first part is "Garant" and the last few letters of the second part are "iert" thought the "i" is not certain.

The movement is numbered 12355B

Dial is 6" in diameter...clock works well but is obviously not a top-of-the-range model or high-value but an idea of what it might be worth- as well as any other info you might be able to help with - would be gratefully received.

Thank you very much......Doug
