Thank you that does help explain quite a bit, especially knowing that the one site is not reliable. Little things like a site with less than accurate information only make it more confusing, thank you.
Sorry for this but I am really confused now. This is from a much earlier post on NAWCC by another member. They do say that it more accurate to use the DRP but mine has no patent number. I know that Tatyana did go into great detail and I greatly appreciate that. I am hoping that someone can help...
Thank you both. This information has been very helpful.
My last photo shows a set of hand etched numbers 15940L. I’m sure this was done at a later date but am curious if anyone has seen this before and does it hold any meaning
I have had this clock for a while just have never tried to date it. I’m going through my small collection and cataloging them. Any help with an approximate date would appreciated. Sorry I hit post before I had a chance to add photos.

I may have solved the maker on this one. I had reached behind the mechanism with my phone and took a video. When I watched it I did not see anything but when I went frame by frame I did see something. It isn’t a very good picture but I think I can see a circle with the letters LFS in it. When I...
Sorry I didn’t think to take a picture of the pendulum, it was set in the bottom of the case. Price is the only thing holding me back right now. They have a price tag of $500, which I’m sure is negotiable.
I came across a clock in a antique mall and I cannot seem to find anything on it. I know I must be looking in the wrong place. The face of the tall case clock has a name above the 6. L. Döring Leipzig. I’m guessing that Döring is the maker but can only find information on small travel clock. Any...
