Badische Mantel Clock

Hi all

I m just finished working on a Badische mantel clock but I know nothing about them really (Badische that is, I m learning about clocks) .
I come across a Badische clock once every two or three years so I m in the dark about putting a date on one.

I m assuming that the clock is circa 1890 - 1910 but that is just a hunch. The dial is zinc or tin with light brass spandrels and the chapter ring seems impressed into the zinc plate. There is a slot for a pediment on the case but that's long lost.

Ant additional information on the clock and Badische would be most appreciated.

Eamonn

Hello, Eamonn.

I agree with your hunch on the vintage of the clock (1890 to 1910).

The Badische trademark was registered in 1890 and the clock has a look that falls nicely in the above period.

They commenced business in the 1880s and were dissolved in 1983.

I am not aware of any Badische serial number database to narrow the date of manufacture.

Regards.

Thanks for that, Badische got a good run out of it in fairness. I ll go with turn of the century, it s as good an estimate as any.
Thanks again
