Postman's Clock

Hi,

I have not previously posted. I am restoring an old clock. A Postman's Clock.
It was very dirty. Not sure its exact provence.

After cleaning, the makers signature was revealed. I cannot read this as it is
in Gothic script. However, the city appears Gothenburg.

Could any member provide any further information. I attach a photo of the signature.

Bernard.

I get the same. Appears you have to be a member of that site to see the images.
