    German Grandfather Clock (circa 1890)

    Inherited this clock from my parents who purchased in Düsseldorf, Germany at an Estate Sale in 1965.
    They thought it may have been 70-80 years old at that time.

    There is some printing / markings on the back of the clock face but difficult to read:

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    If "MIT" is the name of the city/town where the clock was made, that might limit the search down to:
    1. Mittenwald(e),
    2. Mittweida; or
    3. Mitterteich
    Can you post a pic of the reverse image where "MIT" is shown?

    Love a clean stately GF clock - can't help with mechanics but patina looks proper for the estimated age, beveled glass, nice carvings and accents.

    My german clock goes cuckoo -
