Unknown "bbb" ceramic clocks

 

The clocks we call "bbb" generally bear sculptures of people or animals.

Often they are painted with soft tone colors.
Sometimes however they are decorated with decals (such as model 7396 below).

The cast number is generally engraved in italics; they range in the 7000 and the 9000 numbers.
 

Exceptionally, they bear the following mark (engraved) :

We are very interested in any information you could have on these ceramic clocks and their manufacturer, including:

  • When were these clocks produced ? For which markets ?
  • Did they manufacture some other clock models ?
  • Where was the ceramic manufacture located ?
  • Who founded it and when ?
  • How big did it grow ? When ?
  • Is it still running ? If not, when and why did it close ?
  • ...

We would be really grateful if you could send any information to our curator
Thank you very much. 

Please note that this page is updated as soon as we get additional information.
There is not use writing the Museum to ask for more: all we know is here!
