Show us a pic of those numbers please. Is it a tall case clock or a mantel clock?

This is wall clock movement.
42 means 42cm total length of the pendulum
105 - is number of pendulum swings (half period) per minute

I think you're right about the 42, Alex. But the other number doesn't seem right. 210 BPH sounds about right though. Did you mean per hour?

I meant that there 105 tic-s per mitute, or 52.5 tic-tacs per minute. 42/105 is very common parameter for many Mauthe-s.

It looks like a Westminster chime clock. It appears to be a mantel clock. The suspension spring needs to be mounted inside the groove in that post at the top of the clock. Then a bob similar to this one will hook on the bottom of it. You might be able to find one closer to you, or "borrow" one from a junked movement.
