Hi Mike. I have a little more info. Took the back off it and it has the name hofmeier winterhalder Germany. They made clocks from 1869 - 1933. I would like to know if it is worth repairing it and any information you could give me. Thank you.
Hi, Hans Winterhalder founded a company called HAWINA Clock Company with 800 employees devoted purely to the exportation of Winterhalder clocks to England, Russia and America during the first decade of the 20th century. Their mark was "HWN". Hawina was eventually sold to the giant German clock firm of Junghans in 1925. The movement as it is right now the value would be around $250.00 - $300.00 US getting the movement cleaned up and re oiled runs about $75.00 to $125.00 US then if there are not any problems with the movement after that the value to a collector or one who needs a period Winterhalder movement the value would be $650.00 to $800.00 US. There movement were of very high quality. I hope this helps you.
