clock movement
clock movement  
I have a clock that I would like to know who the maker was. I will attacd a picture of the back of the movement, showing the makers mark, and serial number. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

made in Freiburg in Schl  Germany  by Regulateur Fabrik   logo is from 1896
The movement is almost certainly from one of the several German clock manufacturers in Freiburg, in Silesia. Indeed, it is most likely from Germania, as is the movement in the photo below.

The Regulateur-Fabrik Germania was founded in Freiburg in Silesia in 1871. A registered cooperative with unlimited liability, it was one of several factories started by former Gustav Becker workers. And in 1899, it was one of the several so-called Freiburger regulator factories that came together with GB to form the Vereinigte Freiburger Uhrenfabriken Aktiengesellschaft inkl. vormals Gustav Becker in Freiburg in Schlesien.,_Watches)
