Since I love the look of this clock, any opinion is welcome, even the not so good ones. Good or bad, I'll still happily keep it. The logo on the back I've traced to Franke & Groneman per Mikrolisk. I'd like anyone's opinion that might narrow the 1890 to 1930 time span a bit. I am also curious about the dial. I've only seen porcelain chapter rings on clocks of this style. The metal chapter ring itself seems to have the same age as the rest of the clock, but I'm surprised it partially covers the edge of the center engraving. The center engraving however does match the bob, so they are a pair. There are two extra screw holes in the backboard. They are the only ones visible but there may be more hidden by the gong holder, so it may not be original. I've removed the gong, which is why it is not in the photo. I must confess the sound of this one grates on my ears. The banging of a metal pie pan came to mind every time I heard it. It is safely stored away. The case is 33 inches long overall and 12 inches wide, so on the smaller side. Without a reference, it appears in the photo to be much larger, which it is not. There are signs of repair which function but need some finishing. What went on the empty post pin above the rack in the front with the wheel shaped shadow puzzles me. I can't think of a function for a wheel in that position. Your comments are appreciated.
