Picked this up today at a super price. Kienzel tambour. Movement only says made in Germany and 22. Runs and strikes but may be the dirtiest clock I've come across with oil visible in drips almost. The gong post has the keinzel logo. Unfortunately the bezel door is snapped off at the hinge .....although it did come with it. Fabric over back door. Very faint date or something printed on it.

Did these have model names? Date?

May take two posts to get all pictures.

Thanks for any help.

Is that Feb 1922 in bottom left of the cloth?

looks like a stamp with that date indeed.

This is a good quality movement by Kienzle and also a nice gong. I would not have expected such a high-quality movement in 1922 anymore. But may be the movement dates back to before 1914, but was not installed because of the war. I think that's possible.

Best regards!

:emoji_thumbsup:Thanks for the replies guys. I always appreciate the wealth of knowledge folks on this board have. The history of the clocks and clockmakers is a large part of why I enjoy clocks.
