    This clock was introduced in 1927, a time when clock producers
    were searching for new, more modern styles.
    The model was designed by Prof. Heinrich Tessenow, an architect
    at Berlin University and was manufactured by Deutsche Werkstätten
    Hellerau (Dresden).
    One could say this happened side by side to Bauhaus (University) styles,
    although Tessenow was not directly involved with them, afaik.
    The clock face is a typical BF laquered wood, cream colored, with
    a brass frame.

    I have seen several different movements in these clocks, including Junghans.

    But, does anyone know this particular lyre type movement?
    I could not ID it so far.
    The plates seem to be sawed out and filed of solid brass, some parts
    (levers, pallets cock) are cast brass.

    It has the look of a cuckoo movement, but never had the lift lever holes cut out. Not one I've seen before.
