Finding a name or trademark image on a clock may simplify the task of identifying the maker and the approximate date the clock was made.Then again, it may provide you with misleading information.

For instance, an original paper label may have been taken from a clock (perhaps one in poor condition) and affixed inside another in an attempt to make the second clock seem more valuable or to lend an air of authenticity. Reproductions of old labels are also available for purchase from a number of sources.

A reputable dealer will tell a buyer if a label is a reproduction. But the dealer himself may not know (or investigate too closely), and there are, of course, some sellers who deliberately attempt to mislead buyers.

However, a movement signed by one maker may have been placed in a case made by another - a practice usually termed a "marriage." A clock case made in one century might even have a movement made fifty or a hundred years later.

Below are only a few of the most common trademarks you may find on an old clock. We'll be adding more as time goes on. Click the trademark to see the maker's name and country. If you are trying to identify a trademark that you don't see here, you can submit it to the Member Forum and we'll try to ID it for you.
