Dear readers,

I am a history student busy studying old artefacts. This Kienzle clock has been in my family for decades, at least before WOII. For my studies I'd like to know more details about this clock, because I know very little. It was probably bought in the Netherlands before WOII. Could anyone help identify this clock? Please ask if there is anything you need to know!

Thanks!

Jeroen

Welcome to the message board! Could you open the back door and take clear pictures of the backside of the movement? Note any stampings that you might see. Might help with identifying the clock. Good luck with your studies!

These are some pictures from the inside of the clock and a stamp on the bottom. I didn't notice any other clear stampings.

Kienzle was -as you may allready know- a verry prolific firm that produced from the middle of the 19th century until they closed their doors in 1996.In the beginning of the 1830ies Kienzle engaged a verry influencial designer Heinrich Möller ,who changed the appearance of Kienzle clocks significantly.The style of Your clock could be called Art Deco with slight echoes of Art Nouveau,a style that disapeared with Möller´s arrival.So my guess would be 1920ies.
In any case a verry stylish clock,congrats!

Hello Jeroen,

Your Kienzle clock is a lovely example of an Art Nouveau style particularly popular in the Netherlands and some other parts of Europe. I would say the clock dates from about 1900-1910.

I am less sure about the movement. I am not entirely sure that this is the original movement. It may be, but there will be others here who can probably identify it better than I.
