    I saw movements LFS with low numbers 1 (grandfather clock) and 2 (wall clock).

    Well maybe they are serial numbers but I personally don't think so. Maybe model numbers, factory i/d? I don't know, it just doesn't feel right (and to have the first and second clocks seems to be a marvellous coincidence!)

    That's what my symbol looks like with the LFS just like the pic you have and right below that the #20.

    I'm looking at it now to take the movement out.

    Good morning.
    s91five0, the top piece of your clock seems to miss upper finial. Here is the clock with the case that to my mind appears to be identical to yours, although the dial and the hands are of different style:

    Hi all!
    I'll add another similar clock with a low number of movement.

    It is possible that at its previous home, the ceiling was too low and
    the person had the good sense to save the final.

    I know that when he moved he took off the weights and the pendulum, tied the chains together. So that final he must have taped it there, I was freaking out when feather took me about it and I know that he had all the parts for this clock. HOW DO YOU SPELL RELIEVE? FINAL!!!! LOL.

    s91five0, this is not an answer to your question regarding black enamel. But just to give some more details: there are two instances of GF clocks from LFS Musterbuch of 189x that are very close to your masterpiece. What I would like to mention - coexintance of Roman and Arabic dials on the same year catalog.

    Very cool, like I said I just received this clock because my dear friend just passed and his daughter give it to my wife and I. I just like the way that the black numbers look on mine because they look so presise!! I think I spelled that wrong. lol
