    Default german clock trademark (RE: chrsvor25)

    i have run across a german clock with a trademark i have not been able to find anything on.

    http://i13.ebayimg.com/01/i/04/48/28/50_12_sb.JPG

    If the link does not work, I will describe it as best i can. it has the crossed arrows like that of hamburg american clock company's trademark, but it has the letters I C E B around it.

    Anyone have thoughts?

    Default german clock trademark (RE: chrsvor25)

    First off, Welcome to the NAWCC Boards chrsvor25 !

    Secondly, I wish I could help you. I wasn't able to come up with
    anything in particlar myself on it. Although, Thats not saying alot
    either . Like you said, It definitly looks like the H.A.C. Trademark,
    With the arrows. But, I couldn't find anything on the letters. Perhaps,
    H.A.C. Made the clock for another company ? Let us know if you do happen to
    find out own your own. Good Luck

    Regards,

    Hello,

    I think this is the trademark of a company that was affiliated with Hamburg American Clock Co., elsewhere, maybe England that used the crossed arrows and the letters of their company. I haven't found it yet and this may not be correct. Still looking. Have found two others in England that used the "crossed arrows" along with something else.

    FWIW, I recall seeing that logo on a much botched horrid marriage of clock parts. It was an import from China. At that time I believed it was a foreign logotype registered by Hamburg-American.

    Months later within recall, I found that logo on the back of a small porcelain clock case that was obviously of Chinese origin. Beneath the logo in English language, it was stated that the object was of German design.

    I am uncertain about the intent of the declaration "German design" based on both my first encounter with the logo on the botched married clock and further from my observation of "age faking" the texture of the porcelain.

    Les,

    You may be correct. I guess we are shooting in the dark not knowing what type of clock this is on. Pictures would have helped.

    Default german clock trademark (RE: chrsvor25)

    It really does look like a Hamburg American Clock Co. case. I have seen several that are very similiar. I couldn't tell about the movement because the picture was too small and no way to resize. Probably a 30 hour time & strike. Didn't find it in the very limited HAC/JUNGHANS book by Hans A.Krauss.

    It is made by Hamburg American Clock company as indicated by the cross arrows. The CEIB stands for China Export-Import Bank. This trademark appeared on many of the clocks HAC made for the Chinese market that were imported into China by CEIB.
