Appreciate if anyone can identify the clock and its movement. Found out that the
wording: Monsterbeskyttet apparently means: Protected by Patent.

Looked up the name: Kunst that is on the back but could not find anything on this.
The small "J" is also on the back.

Also if anyone can assist in identifying the type of Pendulum that would go with this
clock since it was missing.

Thanks, Bob

The star and J indicate that the movement was made by Junghans (German manufacturer), sometime prior to 1893 but not far from that date.
That might help you get started on finding the actual clock name.
I'll move this to the clock general discussions forum. There's some pretty knowledgeable people over there ;)

Bob,

Shutterbug is correct with his identification of the "J in a 5 pointed star" as belonging to Junghans. According to Mikrolisk.de, that mark was used from 1888 to 1890.

"Kunst" means "art" in German.

The Russian / Hungarian / Romanian (?) word that you translated to "Protected by Patent" is interesting and we can only assume that the clock was manufactured for export to that country.

Regards.

I believe it's Danish, but stand ready to be corrected.

Can anyone help on length and type of pendulum that will go with this clock.

2nd issue: Got clock cleaned etc and clock works and chimes nicely but when I put the hands on it will not run.
I have run into this before and found sometimes the pin that holds hands is too tight and it pulls the time arbor
up and clock stops.

On this clock I have tried everything but cannot solve problem. Any help would be appreciated.

Attac DSC01076.JPG DSC01074.JPG DSC01075.JPG hed are some photos.

Thanks, Bob

Looking the the photos, on photo 3 it looks like the you have about 3 washers holding the sub/hour wheel, is this able to move/rotate? Also, you said you had it cleaned? :eek:

Rotates freely
Okay so it is not that, take the hands off and just put the tapered pin in set it going and see if the pin is moving.
