    Hello everyone, newbie here! I got this grandfather clock handed down to me from my grandparents. Lots of great memories of the clock and would love to get it going again.
    It needs some TLC, hasn't run in 6 or 7 years, but as far as I know all the parts are there.
    From doing a search on this forum looks like it is possibly a German clock and the movement is Haller & Dorsch, please correct me if I'm wrong. The cabinet doesn't have any labels nor makers mark on it at all. And from what I can tell the chime doesn't have any markings. Any more info would be appreciated! Thank you!

    Welcome to the forum. The trademark shown on the backplate is that of Haller & Dorsch, of Schwenningen, in the Black Forest area of Germany.

    There is not much known about Haller & Dorsch. They were in business AFAIK from the mid-1920's to the mid-1930's.

    HTH

    Regards.

    Hi,

    The dates suggested above make perfect sense, as the clock is exactly from that period. I can only add that these clocks were produced by a variety of German makers between the wars (including Haller & Dorsch), and are commonly referred to as "round top" clocks, for obvious reasons. The clean, geometric lines of the case and numerals are characteristic of the Art Deco style of that time.

    Regards.

    A good clock person could get this running easily. It takes a complete tear down of the movement, cleaning, bushing, etc,. reassemble, and oiling. Nice clock good luck.
