• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

    Black Forest, help with ID

    Thank you Jeremy. I will try to get my hands on a copy of that book. Betzel, the little rope the monk is holding is connected to the shield, it is only an ornament. I guess it simulates a rope that would ring the bell that is painted on the shield; I thought that was a nice detail. I am...

    Black Forest, help with ID

    I picked this clock up because it looked interesting, I liked the monk figure and the movement. I am assuming it is a Black Forest clock (which would be my first one). There is no pendulum or weights. When I got home I found a note, which is also below, attributing it to Ketterer (I don't know...

    VR questions

    Thanks Ralph, I had not seen that. I looked around a bit more and I have found a couple of things - I should have done more research before posting. Buda, Pest, and Obuda were unified in 1873, creating Budapest. I also found a blog post, in Hungarian, about Lechner Jozsef LINK (if you are...

    VR questions

    I just picked up a Vienna regulator and I have a couple of questions about it. I am curious about the ornaments on the front of the case, I assume they are not original. The case lacks the top and bottom finial. The second question is about the movement, the back is marked 'Juventius Pesten'...

    Conservation porcelain dial

    I may be able to purchase this clock, but the dial is of concern. I read some posts that were very helpful when it comes to hairline cracks. My remaining question is if the chipped area and the area with hairline cracks that might lead to something worse in the future can be conserved as is...

    help with ID and value 4/6

    Maybe 'Carl Wurm in Wien' ? Is the date calendar common in these clocks? I am also not sure there is a hand for the calendar. Thanks

    help with ID and value 1/6

    I was reconnecting with a work colleague that lives in the Balkans. After discussing work, we chatted a bit and the fact I have become recently interested in clocks came up. That was the story, until he sent me a bunch of photos from a private collection he came across. There is very little to...

    Unmarked Vienna/Vienna-like - help ID

    While visiting my mother in law we found this clock in her garage. I was not able to find any markings. There is some text written behind the dial, but I was not able to read it. I just realized I don't have a side photo of the movement. Any help identifying it would be appreciated. Thanks

    FFR Carillon Romanet case

    I do not believe it is painted, or at least not completely (I confess to not know anything about the topic though). It seems the images were individually cut and applied to the case, and some sort of varnish on top of that. Please see the images below, I assume those sharp corners met a blade at...

    FFR Carillon Romanet case

    Hello All, I thought the case of this clock was unique and I took a couple of photos to share (not my clock). These are the only photos I have. I am a newbie and I have not seen anything like it before, I am curious about the case; I was able to learn something about FFR here and elsewhere on...
