Antique Bahnhausle Cuckoo Quail Clock Black Forest Germany For Sale

 Antique Bahnhausle Cuckoo Quail Clock Black Forest Germany

Impressive Large Antique Black Forest Cuckoo / Quail Clock, circa 1900.

This gorgeous antique cuckoo / quail clock is done in the Bahnhausle style, which resembles the German train station huts of the day - (Bahn means train, Haus is house). It features wonderful detailed carving of leaves, vines and berries and beautiful inlaid marquetry. All parts of this 100 year old wonder are original, including the hands and numerals carved from animal bone. The finials are in perfect condition, a rarity with this style of clock.

This master-carver's masterpiece clock measures 24" high by 15" wide and 8 1/2" deep.
A collaborative effort, some one hundred plus years ago by highly skilled individuals deep in the heart of the Black Forest of Germany:

-The talented cabinet makers
-The master carvers that turn local woods into miracles.
-The clock makers that create and install the complicated heavy cast-brass movements and assemble the clocks with the bellows that imitate the call of the cuckoo bird.
-The clock peddlers that would pack these incredible pieces on their backs and go from village to village to sell their wares.

This is an thirty-hour clock that requires the caretaker to draw up the weights once per day.

The movement is stamped: Faller Shone, Germany.

Behind the two doors above the dial are resting not only the articulated cuckoo bird, but a quail bird as well. The quail appears to announce the1/4 hours with three short peeps, ( 15 min. after the hour "peep peep peep", 1/2 hour after the hour" peep peep peep", "peep peep peep", and progresses until the full hour when he is joined by the cuckoo bird that calls out the full hours).

The original bellows produce nice sound and the double gong, (one tone for the quail and one for the cuckoo), have nice resonance.

Both animated birds bob as they call, flap their wings, and open and close their beaks to further entertain you and your guests.

The clock was tested and is in working order, however it may ? need minor adjustment after shipping.

The dial has a small crack near the numeral # 8 but not distracting, actually amazing given the age of this delicate piece.

Truly one of the best examples of this motif I have ever come across - the carving is complete and free of chips, breaks or unsightly repairs.

Complete with the three required weights, pendulum, and my deep remorse in letting it go..
