Thanks Peter and Justin for your replies.
I Googled Haller and found the same movement with the square star pendulum.
It looks like some models had a lever to disable the chimes, but this one doesn't and there is no slot in the dial for one to poke through.
This clock has "Made in Germany" written on the bottom of the dial. It has "U T" stamped on one side of the bottom of the back plate and it has 12cm above a line and 190.66 below the same line.
Does anyone know who manufactured or sold it?
I wonder if anyone knows any more about this clock. It was made by the Ansonia Brass Company which would date it 1854 - 1869. I can't seem to see any info by browsing the web. Does anyone have a more accurate date. Was it made as a ships clock or just a wall clock. Did They have model...
Thanks to all who replied. Your assistance is appreciated.
I did hunt through lists of New Haven clocks but didn't actually see that exact style anywhere. There was one where the case looked identical, but with a different pendulum and glass.
You've nailed it closely to around mid 1880's I...
IMHO, The pictures are depiction of the old "Sing a song of sixpence" nursery rhyme. The words have been changed, but still fit the tune. The picture at the bottom is of four of the four and twenty (inappropriate term) that were baked in the pie. The top pix is of the cook baking the pie.
Can anyone assist with identifying this clock. I have attached some photos to assist. There are no markings on the case. The movement looks like its missing a main spring and the green drips indicate that its had the CRC treatment.
The pendulum looks like it had a pointer on it which...
Re: Conical Pendulum Clock Question
The suspension thread is fixed at the top and the "bob" at the bottom moves in a circle. The centre point of the circle is the the suspension point at the top. The area subtended by the suspension thread is cone shaped.

Point taken, I was more interested in the photo than the actual auction. I'll remember the protocol next time.
When all else fails, read the label! late 1800's as it says.
Thanks for all your help and info, much appreciated.
Thanks again for all the replies,
Any idea of the date of manufacture? I find it an interesting clock.
Here's another one on ePay, same case, but two wind holes, one for a strike train, I should imagine.
Were the "Fleur de Lys" hands a french thing or just a style used by lots of clockmakers...
Here are some more pictues of this clock.
The movement is held in by two straps that extend from the movement to the back of the case.
The numbers on the left are "22" I think. The numbers on the bottom are "48".
The diameter across the glass is 112mm (about 4").
The white chapter ring...
Thanks all for your suggestions.
As you say, a photo of the movement would be a great help. I'll be at its location this week so I'll see if I can turn it around to take some photos of the movement.
