    Not enough ;) I think I know, but:
    I'd like to see pendulum crutch, anchor, movement bracket, upper part of the pendulum rod and lower part of the pendulum bob.

    Clock was made by Gebruder Resch, in second half of 1870'. Teltscher only sold it.
    In the year 1885 business leaded Katharina Teltscher.

    The family Teltscher in Vienna (Wien) was a long established clock business. In 1870 Katharina Teltscher is listed in the Vienna directory as a clockmaker living at Arnsteingasse 30, in Rudolfsheim, which later became the XIV Viennese municipal district (and partially later the XV district). In 1876 the name is listed as Mathias Teltscher (Katarina), Uhrmacher. This appear to show that Katharina's son, or some other relative, had taken over or at least joined Katharina. The same listing continues until 1894, when the listing changes to Heinrich Teltscher, clockmaker, still at the same address (Arnsteing. 30) and continues unchanged to 1937.

    It will be this H. Teltscher whose name appears on your clock. He continues to be listed at the same address until 1938, by which time he is listed as Uhrmachermeister. In 1939 Heinrich is no longer listed, but Katharina re-appears but just as 'private person', not as a clockmaker.
    In 1942 Katharina in still listed but there is no further entry for Heinrich, nor for the clockmaking business.

    In 1941/2 Arnsteingasse was re-named Blüchergasse, because the Arnstein family, after which the street was originally named, was Jewish, and streets were re-named to avoid Jewish names.

    It is remarkable that the clockmaking business remained in the same building from 1870 until 1938 and that the name Teltscher was there even longer.

    The fact that Teltschers were listed as clockmakers (and Heinrich later as Uhrmachermeister) does not necessarily mean that they made the clocks themselves (though as Uhrmachermeister, Heinrich presumably could have). Very often an Uhrmacher would also sell clocks made by others with his name on the dial. I think that you clock movement was made by Gebrüder Resch, but am not certain.

    Hope this helps a little.

    I see Piotr beat me to the identification, but am glad he agrees it is Resch.

    I searched through the old Viennese directories from when Teltscher first appeared (1870) to the last entry (1942) and translated the entries for you.

    The real number of the mechanism is 100000 or 200000 +79492.
    Less than 100000 units were not produced in this technology.

    If we have some luck we will know whether it is 100 or 200.
    Please show the top of the pendulum.
    If it is original there should be a number (79492 only) if it is 100.
    If there is no number will be 200. (if it is original).

    Regards
