As a point of interest, this beautiful Beha was manufactured in the late 1860's and pre-dates the many BF clock catalogs circulating out there today, (carrying the model# 509), by several decades.And the pediment of this clock is absolutely authentic and original to this Beha, # 503.
Many, many of the BF clock catalogs that are referred to today by many people are from the 1890's to early 1900's, and therefore, this magnificent Beha will not be found in these catalogs.
In addition, it was common practice for many BF cuckoo clocks from the mid to late 1800's to not be signed or to not even carry a model number.
