    It is very nice that it has the "H E" inscribed on it.

    I have removed the tall case clock. If you have additional pictures of the wall clock, please post them. Pictures of the front and back of the movement, if possible, would also be good to have.

    Hi!

    I will assume that the movement of your clock was made in 1880.
    Here is a close serial number dated 1879.

    Thanks again for your quick response and information. The approximate date of my clock and the other information posted on your site has added to my clocks history which I thank you all for.

    My next question is after watching a few videos on YouTube about Endler wall clocks and Gustav Becker it was quite evident that all the wall clocks doors were opening left to right, where mine opens right to left. Is there a reason for this or have I got an odd one. Thank you again.

    Your case is made much later than movement. Perhaps this case is a non-factory production.

    This is how cases with close serial numbers look like:

    Hello,

    Clock newbie here! I've inherited an HE & Co wall clock, which used to hang on the wall of my family home in England as a child. It's not in great condition, but has sentimental value. I believe my family have owned it since new. I'd be really interested in dating it. It has serial number 144726. I haven't seen any other HE & Co serial numbers this high, and there is no mention of Becker on the clock (who I understand took over HE & Co in 1899). Does this mean that the clock is likely to be late 1890's? The clock now hangs on my wall in Florida, having been shipped from the UK. I managed to reassemble it OK, but there is a slight wobble in the pendulum and it stops after about 10 minutes. Would anyone have any advice about this?

    I also have received, soon to be unboxed, a grandfather clock that also stood in my childhood home described on a 1979 insurance valuation (it's amazing the documents we have been finding) as "Early 18th century Marquetry and Walnut Longcase Clock with 8-day striking movement, inscribed John Stokes, Bewdley, brass and silvered dial 6'10" high circa 1720-30". If anyone can point me towards any good resources to help me as I work on reassembling and running this clock it would be appreciated! Also I'm very interested about the history.

    Regards,

    John

    Hi John!

    Schmidt's "Lexicon" refers to the bankruptcy of Endler in 1893.The largest serial number in my database is 160_493.

    160_493_ (2).jpg

    There is a movement 144_728, it has an additional signature of A. Eppner.

    c8708b984e3ca89236d7d1812382.jpg 238dab87460c9f533a0ef41cf571.jpg 479117fc44af9a30c2afcbda4a3e.jpg

    About the firm A. Eppner it is known that in 1889 it was still working (1845, noch tatig 1889).
    I believe the movement of Your clock is around 1891.

    BR, Tatyana

    This signature is fake IMO. Eppner family never had any business in Glashutte. Beat scale is probably original and older than movement.

    Tatyana - many thanks for the information. It's great to see another example just 2 serial numbers away from mine. It does seem a bit strange to have Eppner written on one but not the other. But it's good to know that we probably have the date known to within a few years.
