Penlington & Baddy Clock
by: Bill

Hi Dawn,

Looking at the picture of your clock makes me think that it was made in the early 1900's either in England or Germany. Maybe you could look for markings on the movement itself. Sometimes the marks on the movement are on the side of the movement that you can only see when removed from the clock.

It is probably a simple matter to check if there are no markings on the side you can see. Remove the hands of the clock and then the dial. The movement is probably held to the case with 4 screws. Remove them and lift out the movement.

Sometimes the movement is not marked at all. The name PENLINGTON & BATTY, is most likely the name of the jeweler that sold the clock originally. Especially in the early 1900's, many jewelers had the manufacturer of the clocks they sold imprinted with their name.

PENLINGTON & BATTY is the name of a well known jeweler that was located on St George's crescent, Castle St, Liverpool England in the early part of the last century. They were also listed in Manchester. I'm not sure if they are still in business or not.
