    The clock still ticking, I didn't manipulate too much not to cause any damage to mechanisms. I haven't found anything that look like it or similar on the internet. I did find clocks by manufacturer but not this particular one. Any information please help me with this one.
    Measurements: L= 4" x w= 3"

      Doesn't it say Mauthe istead of Mathue ?

      I found this on the net about Mauthe clocks

      Friedrich Mauthe (clocks/watches) Germany

      June 02, 1822 - February 02, 1884

      Started as a general supplier for clockmakers tools and
      equipment. Mauthe accepted clocks on a barter system.
      As the demand for clocks grew, Mauthe started his own
      manufacturing enterprise in 1876. His sons Christian and
      Jacob joined the family enterprise in 1876.

      In 1886 the Mauthe factory started her own spring drawing
      facilities.

      In 1899 a case factory was added, by 1900, 1000 employees
      were on the payroll. In 1915 Mauthe added their own
      sawmill and milling shop.

      In 1923 the year of inflation made competition for Mauthe
      tough. In 1930 2000 workers produced 45,000 clocks and
      watches a week. By 1923, 60% German clocks exported to
      London were Mauthe. In 1970, Mauthe struggled for survival,
      in 1975 the company was in receivership and forced to close
      in 1976.
