Hi. I’m hoping that someone can help me identify this Haller AG clock. I don’t know if it’s genuine or a reproduction but the stamp on the back indicates that it was made by the Thomas Ernst Haller firm (Kienzle). I have found a clock online that was very similar but cannot find this exact one.
Thank you

Welcome to the board.

As you correctly say, the mark on your movement is that of Thomas Ernst Haller, in Schwenningen. The company was founded in 1902 Kienzle in 1928.

I see no reason to suppose that it is a reproduction. What makes you think it might not be genuine?

As Jonathan has said, it is a very typical massed-produced clock of its time. It would probably benefit from (at least) being cleaned and oiled.

It is a genuine Haller AG grandmother clock, circa 1925-1929. This has the older style movement which was produced before the Kienzle amalgamation, which saw Kienzle producing movements bearing the Haller AG name and trademark. The case was most likely made in Britain and the British casemakers went through hundreds of different case patterns, making some particular combinations of case patterns and movement makes very rare. Generalizing these clocks, your clock is not rare but it is well made and looks to be in good condition.

The term 'grandmother clock' in Britain usually describes a smaller floor standing clock with spring driven movement. Basically a mantel clock movement in a taller case and sometimes with longer chime rods. It may also be known as a granddaughter clock or as I like to say, a shortcase clock. 73 indicates a longer pendulum length in centimeters.
