Good afternoon,
I have been repairing a cottage clock that has been in our family for over 100 years. I would love to know the maker but so far i cannot identify the trademark. Does anyone recognise it, please?

That's the trademark of the (German) Union Clock Co. I think it was registered ca. 1894, but I may be wrong about that. Below is the same movement without the trademark, also from a small cottage clock.

The company was around under one name or another (depending on who did what to whom) between 1871 and 1910. So, not quite 40 years. Again, I am not certain about the date the trademark shown was registered/first used.
