    I keep seeing the wing logo for Kienzle clocks in other parts of the forum. But I've never seen that logo on a 400-day clock. None of mine have that kind of logo. Kienzle was in the 400-day clock business from something like 1910-ish to 1929...I believe they made other clocks before that. Any history there to the use of the logo?

    I've seen that logo on the dials, but not on the plates.

    Interesting. Can you date the clock?

    Kurt,

    Kienzle had a few varieties of the "winged clock" trademark, one of the earliest of which was from 1889, IIRC.

    I do not know why Kienzle did not mark their 400 day movements as they did their other clocks.

    Regards.

    Kurt,

    That Kienzle trademark was registered in 1923, so the clock is post-1922.

    Regards.

    It's model 204 from the 1926 Kienzle catalog. That's the best I can do.

    Thanks. Can't say as I've ever seen that catalog.
