Just considering your question. I admit to not having seen this model before.Greg
Well firstly i think that the movement is pre- second world war. The case is of a similar age I would say. The moulded body of the case is mass produced and quite good quality factory made. Whilst the movement does look German, the case could be English.
The football clothes and goalkeeping cap look rather 1920s to me and i could believe that it is all from that period between the wars.
One might like to think that the colours worn by the players celebrate some famous match but I cannot work out what game that might be. Could be a famous cup tie or international perhaps.
It doesn't matter much whether the movement works well or keeps good time. These movements are easily replaced.
With a football tournament just beginning, I would enter it in an auction where i believe it would have popular appeal.
Do you know the Auction Houses in your area? I think it is an interesting object. Greg
