This is a strange clock mainly because I have never seen one with a movement like it. It is 26 inches in length, 9.75 inches in height, and 6 inches in depth.

In the second picture above near the bottom, you can see the pendulum, it is counterweighted at both ends (which also explains why the clock is so long). In the fouth picture you can see one of the counterweights. You turn the weights left or right to adjust the time. I have never seen a pendulum like this.

It is in working condition and chimes what is termed as a "pat-tam" chime (it actually strikes one short and one long) on the hour and the half hour. The chime bar block runs paralell with the movement and is not underneath it.

There are marks on the back . The logo stamped into the metal looks like right and left angel or bird wings spread up with what appears to be a clock face in a circle separating them (see fourth picture), underneath that it is stamped "OR PATENT" over the left is Stamped 43 over 104 with a line under the 43 above the 104.

Thanks to the member of the NAWCC (National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors) I now know who made it and what it is.

I bought it a antique mall here in Dallas.

    Hi,
    The only information I can give you on your lovely clock is that the German name for these clocks's pendulum is Uhlings Waagependel. Lovely clock and thanks for sharing!
