Similar, but only that, to the logo of Erhard-Robert Schlenker, early 20th century, who did make cuckoos.
We have seen it before, here.
IIRC, other makers used different logos on movements than were used on labels, adverts, etc. So, perhaps here. But, I agree, I would like to be more certain.Thanks Steven, I knew it had been here before. My thoughts also turned immediately to one of the Schlenkers, but I feel somehow a bit unconvinced. Why did they not (apparently) link this mark with their name in any of their other clocks (that I know of).
I wonder if E-R Sch. may have used this mark just on movements that he bought in? I have absolutely no evidence for this but it might fit the facts (although if he was reluctant to put a 'normal' E-R. Schlenker mark on, why mark it at all?)
But until I or someone can come up with something better, I guess we can say 'probably' E-R. Sch. but I would like to be more certain. But at least he did deal in cuckoos.
Steven- so you believe this to be the Erhard-Robert Schlenker, Logo?
(Just wanted to double-check, as you used the word 'similar' in your earlier post).
PS- I did finde that they used/registered a number of Logo's, however, probably not used on the clocks themselves.
