Thread: Schatz question

  1. #1

    Default Schatz question

    When did Jahresuhrenfabrik begin calling itself Aug. Schatz und Sohn? When did they start using the Schatz logo on the front of their cuckoo clocks?

    (Yes, I'm trying to get a very rough date for a cuckoo clock.)

    Bangster, I think the company August Schatz und Sohn was registered back in 1881, so that won't help date your cuckoo. However, I think the familiar "Schatz" logo started to be used sometime around the late 1940s early 1950s.

    Greetings Bangster --

    This is one of those "normally messy" areas in that the firm that we treasure today as Schatz went through several names since it was founded in (according to the Lexikon) 1880. To make it more interesting, there's the question of when a certain tradename was registered as compared with when it was actually used in a certain style on clocks.

    That mumbled, it would appear that what was known after 1897 as the Jahresuhrenfabrik-Triberg GmbH became the Jahresuhren-Fabrik GmbH August Schatz & SŲhne in the early 1920s. One indication is a trademark registration from 1921 (below).

    As far as the Schatz goes, there's a registration from 1923 (also below). Don't notice as it just makes it messier the name given to the firm. Perhaps they were just saving space...? When a particular style of the mark was first used is a different question.

    Regards
    Zep
