    Every clock maker seemed to make at least one Gothic style clock. All are interesting and many are unusual. Post your Gothic style clock here. I'll start with this Lenzkirch Gothic Bracket Clock.

    I guess this little German mantel clock might qualify. Made by the Union Clock Company.

    I guess my "beloved" Junghans Visto (my avatar) has elements of both
    Gothic and Gründerzeit (Alt Deutsch).

    Here are a few of the ones in my collection. The Iron Front I haven't had apart in a while and can't remember the maker.The dial is most likely replaced, but nice paint.Lable from "American Clock Depot"? . The Sharp and Round Gothics range from Browns, Welch, Terry & Andrews(double sharp w/alarm), Boardman (triple fusee), Brewster& Ingraham and 2 Jerome(fusee)

    P1010004.jpg P1010002.jpg P1010006.jpg P1010106.JPG P1010107.JPG P1010113.JPG I saw this thread a little late but here it is. I bought this works in York Pa. at a regional a few years ago. It is a trip fusee with bells for the quarters and a cathedral gong for the hour. I figured to make a case for it sometime down the road. When it finally got its turn one quick look and it HAD to be a sort of gothic style. Not quite finished yet here is the result. Thanks for looking...Paradise I dont have an overall picture of the works but this is a closeup of a part of it.

    I don't know whether you'd regard this as gothic. I have at times read it referred to as Gothic. This is the BIG brother to the BUCO little sisters and their relatives. It is an imposing nearly three feet tall!
