I inherited this beautiful clock from my German Grandmother, the wife of a German Cavalry Regiment Commander along with other memorabilia. The chime on the beauty is fabulous and resonates at length through out the house. A mellow comforting tone. I believe it was given to her by her grandmother making it somewhere over 100 years old I believe. Please shoot me a note if you have knowledge of this style of clock. I do know it was blown off the wall in WWII during Allied bombing raids and have seen photos of the remnants of the house.

    If you can post photos of the movement, I may be able to identify it. From just seeing the dial and pendulum, one cannot tell. Those dials and pendulums were used by many different German and Austrian manufacturers.
