    I'm trying to figure out if someone can identify this clock and a possible value. I was told it is a Gustav Becker.

    We will need more photos of the movement. We are not allowed to discuss values on this section of the message board.

    If I could determine the name of this clock and verify if it's a Gustav Becker. I'm interested in knowing if the dial is porcelain? I don't have any other pictures at the moment.

    The dial looks metal. It doesn’t look like the metal has enamel on it.

    I agree with zedric, the dial is metal, not enamel or porcelain. It's virtually impossible to tell if it's a Gustav Becker clock without seeing the movement, especially the back plate which may (or may not ) have the maker's logo.

    Please post more photos when you have them. It's a handsome clock.

    Here are a few more photos to review. The dial is definitely a metal dial. I have included the pictures of the movement. It does say Gustav Becker on the rear plate.

    Definitely a Gustav Becker clock. I will leave it to others to opine on date, etc.

    541xxx puts the date in the early part of 1886, probably March/April.
