I just purchased an antique grandfather clock, which appears to have the logo of Kienzle. The movement has what appears to be a wheel with wings, however no name. Also has the following information:

D.R.Patent
125605

18205 (I assume this last number is the serial number?) I'm wondering if anyone can tell me the age of this clock and confirm this would be a Kienzle. I've uploaded some pictures if that will help. Appreciate any information available. Thanks.

We'll need photos of the movement. Patent 125605 was Kienzle's - it was for a "silent" striking rack from what I see in the patent sheets.

Thanks for the info. I'm adding a quick picture of the back of the movement, which shows the information referenced in my first note. Once I have the movement out of the cabinet, I'll take additional pictures and send. Again, thanks for all the info.

Seeing the trademark (older ornate flugelrad) I would say it's from the 1910's.

The serial number doesn't mean much as there is no known dating system by these.
