Adolf Hummel , who also traded under the name Regulatorenfabrik Badenia, was founded in 1857 in Furtwangen and went out of business around the beginning of the war.

Is this the sort of information you are looking for ?

Adolf Hummel is an interesting figure in the clockmaking world.
He held several patents.
Movements with his name are common.
The movements of T. Bauerle, Müller-Schlenker, Kienzle were mainly used.

This movement was made by T. Bauerle before WWI.

This trademark has shown on these forums in the past.

I am not sure if he is a clock maker (movement maker). I believe he was a case maker.

It was common practice for a case maker or distributor or retailer to purchase unmarked movements from the movement maker and either add his trademark to the movement or have the movement maker add the trademark of the purchaser. As Tatyana stated, your movement was made by T. Baeuerle.

I will add that I have a pendulum bob the same as your bob. My clock with the "swan" bob is a Mauthe.

What you probably have is a Baeuerle movement, Hummel case, dial and pendulum made by an unknown third party. And yet, your clock is all original, as this was common practice in the German clock industry. In fact, a clock with 100% of all components made by one company is a rarity!

Regards.

As for The movement itself Could be dated Pre 1897 as it doesn’t have The ‘’deer’’ trademark ?

thanks

I have almost 400 movements TB in my database, so I'm pretty sure these are 1910s.

T.Bauerle had sequential numbering.
This firm sold movements to many other clockmakers.
You can see the deer on the front board.

It is almost impossible to say. In a country where this type of clock is common, it might not be worth very much. In another place, where such a clock is seldom seen, it could be worth more. Of course, if it were a truly unusual clock by a particularly important maker, then the value might be more stable everywhere.

Your clock is not unusual but it has some nice features. To know what it is worth in Romania all I can suggest is that you look on various auction sites, such as Ebay Germany, (look under sold/completed sales) and/or ask clock dealers. You will probably get different answers, but they may give you an idea.

In the end, most things are worth what people are willing to pay; if you like the clock and you are happy with it, then that is what it is worth.

Others may be able to give you a better answer, but those are my thoughts.

Indeed, it is a nice Clock and had another option for a Gustav for less money but nothing eye-catching... thank you
