    Update: Mystery Solved! This is a 1922ish Gustav Becker Gloria Hanging Wall Clock
    I found a post by by Oswin Bernerd McGuinnes Mar 31, 2013: at http://welcometosteampunk.com/m/photo?id=6606484%3APhoto%3A12849 he wrote:
    "Old family clock that need to be oiled and cleaned up a bit. Going to clean up the wood a bit and possibly the movement. She will currently run about 5 min and stop, a bit gunked up. Beautiful chime." His pic shows the same "Gloria" name plate that hangs behind the pendulum.
    Apparently, "Gloria" refers to the type of chime.
    Also, Melody at https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/66773-german-8-day-wall-clock?in=156-activity# and Sewingconcern at
    https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/140071-antique-wall-clock?in=156-activity# by have similar wall clocks. But, mine has a "Gloria" name plate. While stationed in Germany, parents got this. It is in great condition: delicate chimes on the half & on the hour. No paperwork. Haven't checked the back but i will when I take it to Clock-guy this summer for maintainance.
    Does anyone know about "Gloria" clocks?

      Hi Alfie21,

      Very nice clock!
      I don't know very much about Beckers. From the 2 winding arbors, I would guess that you have a Time and Strike Clock, not a "Chime" Clock.
      Perhaps your clock shop can give you more information?
      Bet it sounds great striking the hours.
      Thanks for sharing!

      Reminds me a bit of my father's clock I got in his estate. The clock does not ring on hour or half hour but it is a battery run clock and wonder if that is the reason. Your's is however much more attractive.
