    The movement is by the German firm Philipp Haas & Sohne (1867-1935 in St. Georgen. I do not recognize this particular label. Perhaps someone else does. However, it could, I suppose, be a fictitious firm. The German firms often copied American style clocks, including cases, movements, and labels. They were trying to regain European markets (largely English) that had been to a great extent taken over by American clock manufacturers. Thus, they attempted to pass off their wares as American. I would put this some where around 1890 +/- a few years.

    And, in fact, it did, in the following thread. (Sorry it took so long to find.) It may be worth noting the differences in the two labels as well as the samenesses. Sharon's has the words "Trade Mark" at the top and the words "[One] Day Time" at the bottom. The trademark in the linked thread has "Schutz Marke" (= "Trademark") at the bottom. Different target markets?

    German Clock

    The movement there was also pronounced a Haas, though it stirred some slight disagreement. Nonetheless, I attach for comparison, a picture of the movement I have in a cottage clock with an Uhrenfabrik Teutonia label (a Haas trademark). I apologize for the glare on the movement, but it's the only picture I have.

    Thank you Steven for the information and link.
    I hope I will find more information in the future and possibly identify the trademark.
