    Unusual Gustav Becker Porcelain Clock

    Here is another unusual clock from the same box as the J Sewell-Paris clock was in. This is not remarkable as a clock, however I think I bought it all those years ago because I had not come across a GB clock that had a porcelain case (Royal Bonn, Germany) with ormolu mounts, there may be some...

    Interesting French Silk Suspension Clock

    I can't even remember when I got this clock, however I have more time on my hands so I am trying to get through some of the many, many boxes of clocks I have. This one seems to be earlier than 1850, however I would like to know if anyone has any idea of the maker as I could not find anything...

    Mini Lenzkirch GF Clock

    Picked up this Lenzkirch a week ago, only needed a bush and 2 mouldings carved (left top of base and right cornice/hood) resilvered dial and surround. Anyway just thought it was a bit different as I had never seen a Lenzkirch like this before. It is 17x5x4 inches and I think made around 1895...

    ID a movement

    I know this is a Badischen Uhrenfabrik movement, however what type of clock is it from. The movement strike train plays every 1/4 hour (music box?) by turning the wheel you can see at the bottom on the front plate. It lowers the L shaped arm as it approaches the 1/4 hour and it lifts up again...

    Some more pic's of Beha case about 1860?

    Here is some pics of the case. The movement is in another thread (I think this is a Beha cuckoo clock) as I dont want to have to many as the download time may be a problem. The case carving has some bits missing and I will have to carve them later as no time at the moment. It was like a jig-saw...

    I think this is a Beha cuckoo clock

    I picked up this clock the other day. I think it is a Beha, however a special one, as it is 'wall mounted', however 'spring driven' not weight or fusee (as mantel type are). I am sure I read that they made wall mounted spring driven cuckoo's around the 1850-60, however they never caught on and...
