    i recently oiled a large German dark walnut case tall cast clock with a nice bim bam movement that was marked "unterhaus" or "unternhaus".
    can anyone tell me if this mark refers to a maker or a place?

    Per Mikrolisk’s website, this is the mark of Wipperling & Wipperling, Standuhren, Uhrenhandel; Gera-Untermhaus, Deutschland; gegründet ca. 1917, bis ca. 1929 (Hall clocks, clock retailers in Gera-Untermhaus, Germany. They were established in 1917 and were around until ca. 1929).

    It looks like the mark of Wipperling & Wipperling, according to Mikrolisk.de:

    Hi all!

    I met the "Wipperling & Wipperling" marking on the movements of T. Bauerle and M. Bauerle.
    This movement was made by M. Bauerle.

    For comparison:

    Yes, Wipperling & Wipperling made the cases in their furniture factory and put in movements from other makers. As Tatyana says, they certainly used Bäuerle movements and maybe others.
