    Just picked up this Glunz oversize mantle clock. Made between 1930 -1950. No information of any significance is available on this brand. Suffice to say it is in overall good condition. The case will be left as is. I have replaced the time train mainspring and the platform escapement requires an overhaul. After that chore, it should work like a German watch. Purportedly manufactured in the Black Forest by the Glunz Clock Company, that's about the extent of the info. But a handsome clock nonetheless. The last photo shows rudimentary casework, a little spit and polish. No major case restoration, this clock is evidently a rarity.

      Nice ! What did you use on the wood?
      I found this from 2012 about a different Glunz clock:
      https://mb.nawcc.org/threads/the-newest-addition-to-my-collection-a-1920s-art-nouveau-german-regulator.88717/
      This was at end og blog:
      "According to a colleague over here, the movement is actually a late Philipp Haas & Söhne (PHS)
      design. PHS was completely liquidated by 1935.
      In a 1932 DUZ ad, the company Glunz & Ohnmacht, Schwenningen, appeared for the first time and
      they changed the company name to Christian Glunz Uhrenfabrik in 1939.
      It is not known, when they went out of business, probably just post WW 2, because in 1967 only few
      spare parts were still in stock.
      Assumedly, Glunz & Ohnmacht took over some of the PHS machinery in those years."

      Thanks Alfie. The last picture just up is the case finished with beeswax. Minor imperfections were repaired seamlessly. While it waits for the repair to its platform escapement, to all intents and purposes it is finished.

      Thanks magician1962 for the update & beeswax info. Beautiful work!
