    Hello. I am wanting to know a few details about this clock. It was my grandmothers, thanks.

    Welcome to the message board! This is a carriage clock of some type...probably best to have it moved by one of the moderators to the best location...hang on for that.

    As for the logo on the face, this is a Mauthe clock and the time period of the clock can be determined to some degree by comparing the logo to those shown in this post:

    Post your MAUTHE clocks here

    Good luck!

    Not technically a carriage clock, but rather, a 30-hour musical alarm clock circa 1920-1930. This design was used by Junghans as well; I'd be willing to bet that there was a bit of badging going on, as identical versions of these clocks were produced with the names of different manufacturers on the dial. These clocks were mass-produced and are well-represented in the market today, coming up for auction regularly.

    I sold one about a month ago. It was a fun little clock, but didn't really have a place in my collection.

    Hello, Justin, and welcome to the board.

    The type of clock that you have is known as a "joker". They were manufactured by many German companies and some U.S. companies during the latter part of the 19th century into the 1920's.

    As was stated, Mauthe manufactured your clock.

    The K.C. Co. on your clock pertains to the Kuehl clock company. They were an American company that imported German clocks, but they also had a German subsidiary.

    Regards.

    I have a Mauthe joker that looks like it came off the same assembly line as yours, except mine has Arabic numerals.

    Regards.
