I stumbled across this clock movement on a Bulgarian jumble stall this morning. I bought it just for the porcelain dial and hands but on getting home have found it to be fully wound and working, though very dirty. I believe its Kienzle, with the horseshoe star mark, serial number 1124730.
Would anyone know what type of case it should be in and a rough date?
It has a removable gong bracket /support, which must have attached to the cabinet, strikes on the hour and half, has an advance lever to move the strike forward every half hour (I'm afraid I don't know the technical term. Dead chuffed, as it cost me less than the equivalent of $5. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum! The mikrolisk database suggests that logo is for Konkurrenz brand which is a Carl Werner clock. Probably 1900 give or take a number of years.

Thanks Kurt. I'm hoping that I might be able to find a case for it. Do you have any idea what length of pendulum it would need and are they all a standard length?

Others will know. Often there is a stamp of "PXX" on the back plate which is the length in centimeters. You can try searching the forum for "Konkurrenz" to see what might be out there.

If you look closely, there are numbers 124 / 30 on the back wall of the movement..
This means that the length of the pendulum is 30 centimeters.124 - the number of movements of the pendulum.

More often Werner movements with the marking 104 / 42.

Thanks Tayana. My mistake, I thought the / was a 7 when I posted. It gives me an idea what to look out for.

Incidentally I've discovered that the movement wasn't as dirty as I'd originally thought. I've just dusted the mechanism with a soft brush and wiped over the dial with some glass cleaner and its come up quite well.

Look for a case for this movement in the topic "Half regulators"
