    This is a small timepiece to complement my Ansonia cottage clock. From the mark, Crescent moon and B , I understand it is a Badische Uhrenfabrik A G clock. The only other identifying feature is a number 11 inscribed on the movement. The hands look original I think. The face is cardboard superimposed over the metal plate. Any other information would be welcome.
    Here are some (poor) photos. I am hoping Santa brings a new camera!

    Stevieliver, yes this is a Cottage-clock of Badische Uhrenfabrik AG. (Baduf)

    But since we know older movements for Cottage-clocks of Baduf than yours, I would date your clock about 1900/1910.

    The number 11 on the movement might be the length of the pendulum in cm.

    That is very useful to know, thanks Albra. I am amazed that such a small movement produces such a loud tick tock! I can see that it is a little moer robust and sophisticated than my Ansonia.

    Gosh, so it is. What a nice co-incidence! Mine cost £18, about $28. Not sure if I overpaid but I am not interested in value, they are just delightful things to own.
