Tatyana, are you basing your identification on the pictures provided or the trademark?

Len, can you please provide a picture of the full back plate? I would like to see the similarities.

Tatyana, are you basing your identification on the pictures provided or the trademark?
My GP database has 20 movements.
Three are made by the Austrian branch of F. Mauthe , two Franke, 15 by the Austrian branch of Kienzle.

Small details coincide with Kienzle: hands and this element:

The short serial number 1_84X also confirms that it is Kienzle.
Kienzle produced a little more than 5,000 such movements.

If TS shows more complete photos of its movement, then my assumption will be confirmed (or vice versa, will be refuted).

BR, Tatyana

Hope this helps and thanks for ID. The complete SN is 1842 which seems for aid in the Kienzle ID.

Thank you Tatyana! Please answer two more questions. What date would the movement have been produced? Is it part of the original clock? My father purchased the clock in Germany in the early 1960s and restored it.

Best Regards, Len

Hi Len!
I believe this clock was made circa 1905.

All look original, nice applique on the dial and the linse of the pendulum makes this clock unique.

I agree with Tatyana.

I really like the pendulum bob, I have never see one like it. It is special.
