Now you have lit the fires of learning more. I have added pictures of the side as well as one of the bottom right side. Under the edge of the wooden floor in a set of numbers about 1/4 high in a fine magenta line:

41 90 I am wondering now if this could be the firing date. The patent date on the works is 1881.

Thank you for all of your information

    All the patent date can really tell you is that the patented item was made after the patent was issued. I believe that this is an early 20th century clock. Beautiful colors too!

    As for the "41 90" mark, it no doubt had significance and meaning to the Royal Bonn Pottery manufacturing process, but I've never run across that level of detail. You might begin a search of the Internet on "Royal Bonn" to find some useful information (if no one else here can help you). You might want to consider changing your second category to "Art Pottery" instead of "China and Dinnerware".

    Perhaps this is case number 41 of 90 fired in a batch? It doesn't appear to be a standard marking for Royal Bonn. I've seen and overhauled number of Royal Bonn Ansonia Clocks and have never noticed this type of mark before. I'll have to be sure to look for any and all markings now. :)

    Speaking of which, the Royal Bonn mark on this case was used between the years 1890 and 1920. (See:http://www.porcelainmarksandmore.com/northrhine/poppelsdorf_2/00.php) and so while this clock *could* have been made as early as 1890, as previously stated elsewhere, my reference states this clock was from circa 1914.
