    Hello!

    I would like to show you my newest mantle clock from a fleamarket!
    -I think it's from the 1920's era. I've a feeling that it's an english mantle clock - is this true?
    -I've tried to search it's makers mark, but no luck so far. Can someone help me identify it's maker?
    (The clock is in working condition.)

    Thanks for any help, have a nice day to everyone :)

    The logo on the movement is that of Urgos (Haller, Jauch & Pabst/Urgos Uhrenfabrik) and was registered August 25, 1923. I see no reason not to think that the whole clock could have been made by the same company. The style is tambour, and it was a popular style in the 1920's and 1930's. I can't give a more exact date range

    Dear Stephen!
    Thank you for your answer! It helped a lot for me!
    How do you mean this? "I see no reason not to think that the whole clock could have been made by the same company."

    Regards: Bálint

    Sorry for being unclear. I mean simply that the whole clock, and not just the movement, was quite likely made by Urgos.

    Okay I think I got it :) I was afraid that the movement or the dial was replaced and it's not it's original.

    cases like that often were made by third party makers in huge quantities and sold to the different movement manufacturers who equipped these with their movements and sold them under their respective name. Allthough the different clock facturies had their specific ideas of how their cases should look like and the case makers made the cases accordingly You can sometimes find identical cases with different manufacturer´s movements in them.Your case Looks original to the movement!

    Hello Burkhard!
    Thank you for your answer too! Good to know these things also. I'm happy that the clock is original. It came like this from the fleamarket, see pictures :O
    I've "oiled" the case and fixed the spiral etc...
