I don't know. Ladder chains aren't often seen in German clocks. Yes, it would help a lot to see pictures of the movement.looks german to me... but the best way to tell is to see photos of the movement... particularly the back plate that might have a makers mark or name stamped on it.
It is a New Haven movement. We have seen it many times. Apparently it is a common movement used in NH longcase clocks. I haven't yet checked to see if this clock might be in Tran.My gut says New Haven, the plate cutout pattern looks very similar to some of their other movements. Also, I believe New Haven used ladder chains for their grandfather clocks.
