Update: I have been told this is by Erhard & Sohne. C

Wow, looks great, I'd say very sophisticated:) Is it working or drawn clock dial?

Victoria, It is very detailed in that the glass cover is curved. The numbered dial beneath it seems printed. The pendulum swings back and forth by gravity.Such as if a small granddaughter shakes it. There is no intermal movement so it does not tell time. It is always 2:25, PM? tea time? Thanks C

I had a computer where every function needed clicking the mouse twice. HONESTLY!!!!! I must stop posting myself twice! C
Flora, I am sure it is an antique from the 20's?
I ordered my first Dian Villner book so am beginning research! xoxo CM (let's see if I can post this only ONCE!) C

Hehe, my Mum still clicks twice on every button:)
Wow such great details, that's when I love functional miniatures. Thanks!

WOW! I have one just like this that came in a box of goodies I bid on because of the 2 early 1950s Caco dolls.
It's really a beautiful piece...and is perfect for your lovely Hacker house! Not sure just where mine will live. :)

I think it is valuable. Not overly so but worthy of care. I like to go on antique dealer sites to look and then wait for items on ebay. Sometimes I just can't wait.xoxo C
