  1. New Haven Clock I Want to Identify it Please

  2. Identification of a logo of a dial

    I have just recently acquired a bracket clock where the movement displays a logo in the form of a clock dial... I have only been involved with clocks for a couple of years but usually my research lines are fruitful, but this one has stumped me ! can anyone help to identify please ? The case etc. point toward early 20th century.

  3. Dial resilvering - Germany

    I am restoring an antique Kienzle grandfather clock and have successfully been able to get it into good working order. The case is beautiful German oak and is in excellent condition. However, I need to have the dial face re-silvered and new numerals painted. I am located in Frankfurt, Germany and need to find a shop in Germany that does this work. Does anyone know of such?
