    A clock I'm refurbishing is by Herschede, with a movement "made in Germany". The movement is well made, with plates 3.1mm thick, hefty gears, only one spring, and graceful counterweights on the timing components. It probably dates from 1924 or later. Can anyone identify the maker from the pictures attached?

    looks quality. since it says made in germany, i would say 20th c but before the second war. appears to be kind of a reproduction of a typical english time and strike.

    i cannot imagine a herschede clock that this would be a good fit for?

    The large shaped strikng parts remind me of Winterhalder & Hofmeier.
    Here is a Westminster Chimes twin fusee by W+H that probably dates to the 1920s. You be the judge.

    Thanks, all. The W&H looks sort of similar.

    PS: One thing I especially like about this movement is the knurled knobs on the threaded rod for getting the clock in precise beat with no trouble.

    Well, here is a picture of the dial. I was told that the crown indicates that it is by Herschede.

    the crown does indeed indicate herschede. not a model that i am at all familiar with. perhaps there is someone here on the forum that owns this exact clock who can chime in and help you out.

    Sorry, maybe it does work only for facebook users. Anyway, here's a picture of the finished clock, on site, with my clock buddy and the director of the foundation that owns it:
