Hello, David C. Again with another of my late fathers clock. I'm hoping to find out the maker and approx date it was made. I've attached pictures, the only markings I see is the number 5227. Also is this considered a Long Case clock? The case measures about 32"x 16 1/4". Overall length is about 36". Thank you in 20210513_233723.jpg 20210514_002009.jpg 20210514_002203.jpg 20210514_002247.jpg 20210514_002302.jpg advance for your help.

It's not a longcase as it sits on the wall, rather than on the floor. They're often called (incorrectly) Vienna regulators.

Does anyone know who it was made by? If not called Veinna regulator, what would you call it? Thank you

Hello
As in the previous one ... it would be nice to see more pictures.
- the whole mechanism, because here it is partially cut at the bottom
- clock mechanism from the top so that the elements are visible
- like a mechanism mounted in a clock case

greetings
Yahagi

No idea who made your clock as several German companies made these.
They are casually know as Regulators in Germany. Nothing more, nothing less.
This is frowned upon by American collectors who uniquely hold the term 'Regulator' to mean a different type of clock,
such as the large weight driven wall clocks produced by American companies such as Seth Thomas and E. Howard.
Clock terms tend to be subjective and regionally-accepted despite the 'insistence' of some fanatics.

The best way to figure out what's what is to go through regional catalogs and trade literature of the period.
Here is a page from a 1900 Junghans catalog showing Weight Driven Regulators, which I had to fix
because the original scan came in backwards:

Unfortunately, there are no new / more detailed photos.
Based on what you can see:

The mechanism was produced by Kienzle perhaps for the Non Ultra Plus. The first years of the 20th century.
More detailed photos could confirm / challenge this.

Here is an example of a Kienzle mechanism from that period with a slightly later number.
