Recently purchased a mantle clock at an auction in SF would like to know manufacturer.
there were NO markings on dial or plates. Very heavy three train with removable third plate which allows removal of all three barrels without plate seperation.
In my efforts to clean the Strike side spring, the winding stem #7 key broke/twisted off of the arbor. Now I need an arbor. I added a drawing for your viewing.
any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Clock maker revisited..........I found the trademark. it is quite small. I searched the forums and found it rather quickly then a wrong keystroke closed the page and I could not recover the post.

It's going to be difficult to find a replacement. Having a new one made for you, or having the old one repaired might be your fastest option.
You and R&A should have a private conversation and see what you can work out. On the left side of his post above you'll see the "Start Conversation" link. Use that to get started.

PHS= Phillip Haas and Sohne
Yes, that is correct, although it is actually Philipp, not Phillip. The firm of Philipp Haas & Söhne was in business in St. Georgen from 1867 until 1935 and made a wide range of clocks, some of very good quality.

The OP's movement looks to be well made.
