    Hello,

    I have restore recently this blinking eyes clock. It´s an antique Black Forest clock made probably circa 1870-1880. I think clock case and clock movement is from that age.

    My question is who was the clockmaker?. There are in the of the clock teh firm "LD".

    Any idea about the clockmaker name?.

    Thank you in advance,

    Miguel

    Hi Miguel,

    Nice clock. In a couple of your pictures there is a "hare" visible. Looks like the "bridge" for the verge pivot. That identifies the maker of the clock as Phillip Haas & Sons, founded in 1867, St, Georgen black forest. Last year there was aniother clock on the message board with the same "hare" for the verge pivot.

    Best Regards,

    Richard T.

    Hi Miguel -- another nice clock. Congratulations!

    The PHS "springender Hase" that Richard identified when used as a "Hakenblättchen" dates from 1883 (as announced by the firm). The LD was a framemaker's mark. The fairly high "batch" mark numbering (43?) to show which removables go with which frame indicates that there was serial production (whether in-house or out) although it was still partly handcrafted.

    Regards,
    Zep
