They Are   P115 And 44838. There Is Also A Number Stamped On The Black Iron PLate That Says ISGUS On It, The Number Is 1134. I Have Attached Some PictureS That Might Help Identify It. I Have Not Been Able To Find Out Any Info On This ......Please Help.

Thanks,

Answer
Grandfather and grandmother clocks are worth pretty much what ever you can get for them.  You do have a fairly old German clock.  Please see below.

   Welcome Dave --

   The firm is J. Schlenker-Grusen, and you'll find some information on-line through "Schlenker-Grusen" or "ISGUS". There's a small print, full-page reference in Hans-Heinrich Schmid's Lexikon der Deutschen Uhrenindustrie 1850-1980. The ad below comes from a 1925 German "address book."

   Regards,
