Won at auction for very cheap. I forgot I even bid on it. I know nothing about it, other than it looks German to me.

Any help is appreciated.

The movement of your clock bears the logo of Mühlhauser & Pleskot (the company had various slightly different names over the years). The company was founded in Vienna (Austria) in 1873 and went out of business in 1941).

This movement is a tic-tac movement which was mass produced by a number of companies in a very similar style. They were cheap and simple but work very well.

I think it is a very nice clock and the dial looks to be in good condition. The writing on the wood seems to be a name and address but I cannot read it all. It might have been written by a repairer at some time.

Very nice buy, congratulations.

Thanks.I seem to be very lucky lately I keep low balling & winning auctions. This was $35.
That was a really good buy. Well done!

The writing on the board is in German and if you can post a clearer photo perhaps we can read it.

Cleaned up, waxed, & hung. The movement has like 4 or 5 pivots & they all seem tight. Wound & oiled it and it just took off. Don’t see any need to overhaul it at this time. I wish all clocks were this easy.
