Here are a couple more, looks like an M on the right lower side. If there is a serial # I don't know where.

The patent number 171659 was issued in 1906 for a feature of the striking mechanism...and the patent was used to about 1922 per what John Hubby has written. Note that there is a serial number under that oblong plate below all the logos. If you remove the plate, the serial number will be helpful for narrowing in on a manufacture period.

Hi Kurt

thank you for your quick response. I have taken the plate off and this is the serial number I have found.

Thanks again Kurt what a great help you have been!
This clock came with a floor standing case, looks a bit home made is there somewhere on here where i can get a few pointers try to put it all together to see if actually works?

I think you should start a new thread somewhere explaining the dilemma you're in. Show additional pictures of the various pieces. Let the other experts give you guidance on how to proceed.
