    Hello everyone.

    New to the forum. I recently came across an ad for an antique mantle clock where I live and decided to purchase it upon seeing it. I admit I know nothing about old/antique clocks. I searched the internet trying to find information on the maker of the clock but mostly came up empty. I was hoping someone here may be able to provide some information as to how old it may be, who made it and any history on the maker.

    Thanks

    Al

    It has an English look to it, not terribly old but possibly WWII era. I'm not familiar with the name. There was a Faller who made clocks in Germany, but not so sure this is one of his.

    Welcome!

    Yes, the logo on your clock is the trade mark of Uhrenfabrik Erhard Faller in Schwenningen (Germany). The firm was started in 1928 and was still in business 1967 according to Schmid's Lexikon.

    I would guess your clock was from 1950/1960s.

    Hope this helps you.

    Thanks JTD.

    I did find some references to a clock maker named Faller from Germany on the internet but not much else. This helps a lot.

    The gentleman I purchased it from was a veteran and said he purchased it in Europe but didn't say where or when.

    Thanks Shutterbug.
