I have an antique clock with the initials VH and a symbol of a tree above it. I have not had much luck finding who the maker was. It was purchased by my wifes father as an antique in Germany in the 60s.
Hello Jim and welcome to the NAWCC message board. Thanks for the photo, it may help someone identify your trademark. I have checked Kochmann's European Trademark Index and have not found it. There are several "tree" combinations but none that match yours. I feel certain that someone will be able to identify your trademark.....
The VH with a Tanne (a fir tree) mark is identified in Schmid's (2005) _Lexikon der Deutschen Uhrenindustrie 1850-1980_, the standard reference to the industry, as belonging to the Villinger Hausuhrenfabrik AG, in Villingen. The firm was founded in 1920 by Willi Brunckhorst, and only lasted until 1925. They made Standuhren -- "grandfather" clocks -- but no other information is available.
The mark here is shown in the TM listings from the (1925) _Diebeners Uhrmacher-Kalender_ for 1926.
