    I have had this little mantle clock for well over a year, the movement didn't work, it was missing its hands and pendulum fob and basically collecting dust. The clock is by a UK company called FOREIGN, that manufactured clocks for the export market, the movement in it is German. Today I tore it apart cleaned and adjusted the movement, the clock was missing its hands and pendulum fob so I went through my collection of parts hands and pendulum fobs and she is up and running. It has Westminster chimes .

    The name"FOREIGN" marking (usually under the 6 on the clock face) stems from an option that was specified in the UK's Merchandise Marks Act, 1926. If FOREIGN it appears on both the movement and case (dial) may indicate that both case and movement are of German manufacture. (Note that while the majority of clocks so marked are German, the requirement applied beyond that country.)

    The marketrey on the case front is inlaid veneers is in perfect shape. The metal ornamentation on the bottoms just adds to its deco feel. The clock dates from about 1928 - 33. The clock is 11" long, 9" tall, and 4.5" in depth.
