Here is a vintage wind-up clock I picked up at a garage sale some months ago. It is old and dirty but still working. no identifying marks beside 'Germany' on the face.

    Hi,
    I just happened to come across a clock similar to yours. That one has been Identified to be a Mauthe, which is a good, famous german maker. Date wise, I would place this one between 1900 and 1920. A lovely clock!

    Thanks so much ticktocktime100, now I have a direction to look to find out more. It runs and keeps good time but needs to be wound every couple of days. I don't know how long a "winding" should last for this little old clock.

    Hi,
    In your description, you say it's dirty. I suggest you take the back off and oil it because, the dirt may stop it from running the time it was designed to. There is a certain oil for this, which I can't think of offhand, but that can probably be found online. You oil the clock on the pivots, which are the end of the gears (a clock repairer should probably do that at a low cost). For future reference bear in mind that a clock needs to be serviced every 2-5 years. The movement is probably 8 day. Good luck with it!
