Feel free to message me if you are interested in other clocks like this. I have many others i would consider selling or trading. The higher end stuff will not likely hit .
I have a fantastic old antique SPRING DRIVEN, KEY WIND, DOUBLE FUSEE, CUCKOO clock . 8-DAY MADE BY JOHANN BAPTISTE BEHA, ABSOLUTELY TOP QUALITY . its in EXCELLENT condition overall... BEAUTIFUL DEEP RICH WOOD TONES! solid WALNUT CASE. . ..has a deep rich reddish brown tone to it. VERY ORNATE ORIGINAL UNUSUAL MATCHING BONE HANDS (PRETTY NEAT) THE HANDS ON THIS CLOCK ARE FANTASTIC! VERY DETAILED! AMAZING!
THE CUCKOO EMERGES AND CALLS THE HOURS AND ALSO THE HALVES.. NICE QUALITY WINDING key is also there. CA.1870 .. ALL ORIGINAL BONE NUMERALS OVER THE 6" DIAL and in excellent condition. it measures 20" tall and 13" wide..... this clock has been well taken care of for the last 100++ years!!!... TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICS! wonderful SUPER HIGH QUALITY AND HIGH RELIEF WOOD carving design to the case VERY ORNATE! NO BREAKS REPAIRS OR MISSING PIECES. WONDERFUL ALL ORIGINAL AND VERY CLEAN CONDITION. I will not date this clock exactly but i make it to be about EARLY 1870's. JOHANN BAPTISTE BEHA is one of the best quality makers of his day, and his name is right up there with the others like KETTERER, JEAGLER, , WEHRLE, HETTICH, FLEIG, KLAUSMANN, BEUERELE, AND PHILLIP HAAS. It is a known fact that the higher end makers at times shared the carvers, and their services are seen in examples of all of the above named clock makers. An amazing carving.. (see photos) the big old 100% ORIGINAL wooden cuckoo with moving parts and hand painted, PAINT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION ON THE BIRD, early VERY LARGE HEAVY 8 DAY WOOD plated, TWIN SPRING DRIVEN, FUSEE STYLE, movement is in excellent condition showing very little wear to it. .. ....VERY CLEAN adjustable brass pendulum . flute pipes are beautiful and correct, and THEIR MATCHING TOPS AS WELL were very professionally recovered, and using correct goat skin leather to insure aesthetic value and many years of trouble free running. .. A++ SHAPE!... its a very nice piece. wonderful deep rich sounding cuckoo call..hard to find in new clocks...sounds like a real cuckoo bird! There is a legend in Eisenbach (where the Beha clock making shops were) That Johann refined his flute pipes until he was able to get a return call from a real cuckoo bird.. amazing the sound in these earlier Beha clocks. .. ... . please allow the pics to answer questions you have and feel free to ask. . This clock is in amazing condition. EXCELLENT RUNNING ORDER, it was left alone and preserved in its original state... A rare find.
