Unknown German? clock company trademark

Hi all
I have just started working on what I presume is a German clock movement but I have no idea what company. Have any of you come across this trademark before? Any information on it would be appreciated.

It is housed inside what looks very like an Anglo American clock case and the seating board, position of the gong etc all look perfectly correct as original.

I have come across a Badische clock from just before the turn of the century that was clearly a copy of an American clock but again I ve never seen this particular maker.

Your help will be appreciated.

It looks very like the logo of Union Clock Co. (Jakob Fellheimer, Merzbach & Lang) but I have never seen it on this star background. So I am not sure.

Others may know more/better.

It is Swiss. Here is the link.
That is the proper identification of the trademark, but I am not sure if they are the maker of the movement.

Our friend Yahagi identified movements marked by Usine de la Vièze as being made by Mauthe and some by Kienzle.

See the second photo in response number 4 in the attached link.

(1) Please help me to identify this clock mark. | NAWCC Forums

You will also see that Usine de la Vièze was identified as a maker of pendulums.

Regards.

Thank you Tatyana.

Wanduhrenfabrik Angenstein was in business from 1898/9 until liquidation in 1927.

There is a complete article on the company in Schmid's 'Lexikon'.
