    Hi, I was wondering if someone could give me any information on this antique table clock. It was my grandparents and I remember always playing with it as a child and just recently found it stored away. It says Meiringen Wood Carving Co on the face with Switzerland under the 6. The chime component says Swiss and has an anchor stamp with what appears to be initials J C on it. The motor inside says Meiringen Switzerland and has two crossing arrows stamped as as well as the numbers 1128. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I’ve been trying to crack the mystery myself for a while now but the online database doesn’t have much. I was thinking perhaps a Hamburg American Clock company when it was merged with Junghans perhaps? Thank you!

    The Case of the clock has been made by the Meiringen Wood Carving Company. The movement is by the Hamburg American Clock Company, just as you thought. It has been signed by Meiringen additionally, but they just fitted it to the case. The music box is Swiss, but I don't recognize the logo. Maybe other do.
