Hi, i am trying to identifie a clock movement, the makers stamp on the back plate is very faded? but it seems to of been a circle with birds wings either side, the clock is a wall clock about 80cm long chiming type on the hour and half hour, i am led to believe by the auction notes of it to be early 20c, the wood looks to be mahogany, i will get some pics of the clock up as soon as i can, thanks in advance .


regards john

Hello John,

You need to attach some photographs.. See recommendations on image size and how to attach them.

Thanks for the info, it is the kiezle motif without the kienzle name above it, the other thing i have noticed is the brass plate on the movement seems discolored, more like a red rust colour? the case has been re polished quite good but i think a bit heavy on the varnish, im wondering have they tried to clean the movement, it does work but only for about 15 P1020207.jpg P1020206.jpg mins maybe a good service will sort this out?

regards john

Yes, this is Schlenker & Kienzle. After 1899.
