Antique Black Forest Rose & Daisy Shelf Cuckoo Clock~in Ortenberger's Book~nice For Sale
GREAT BLACK FOREST ROSE AND DAISY SHELF CUCKOO CLOCK
Up for sale is a fabulous example of a beautifully carved antique shelf cuckoo clock. ThisIS the shelf cuckoo that is picturedin Rick Ortenberger's book, 'Black Forest Clocks' on page 72 upper right, and was showcased at the Cleveland National Convention. Case is in very good condition, measures 21"x14" and has daisies, roses and pear tree leaves on the crown piece and around the dial. I cannot see any loss to the carvings. The only damaged areas are: right side of the case along the back, about a 6" piece of veneer is missing, it is hard to see; a small split in the left side of the case about 3" long; a small split in the case under the dial.
Back door and gong are original to clock. Thick pinned brass plate movement runs and operates as it should. There is a number '8' stamped into the back of the movement, no other identifying marks. Has a nice large moving beak and wings cuckoo bird on wooden perch and is in good condition. Brass pendulum came with clock.
Don't miss this rare chance to own one of the documented Black Forest Shelf Cuckoos that was actually photographed for Rick Ortenberger's book! I really hate parting with this beautiful clock, but as I am downsizing, some have to go. I will be selling many others in the months ahead.
Payment via Paypal please.
SHIPPING: Item will be insured and well packed. No returns please. We will gladly answer any questions.
NOTE: I am still always seeking rare and/or unusual Black Forest clocks (cuckoo, trumpeter, organ/flute, automated) to buy or trade.
THANKS and Happy offerding.
