Beautiful * Old German Blk. Forest Cuckoo Clock W/ Animated Animals:
This Beautifully designed Old German Black Forest Cuckoo clock with a 'Animated" Deer and Fox was found at a recent private estate sale along with several other old Cuckoo clocks. (Please view the pictures below) This clock was totally carved and really shows with the artistic ability of the German Black Forest wood carvers. The clock was created in the mountain Chalet style and measures an impressive size with a overall length of 17" from the top finial to the bottom of the pendulum and a width of 8 1/2" at the widest point. The top of the Chalet's roof has two criss-cross carved boards with a shield design plaque in the middle. The eye catching focal points are below are two colorful Forest Pines on the sides accented in background with grooved boarding. The lower part has a extended carved and colorful Rocky ledge with long bladed grass growing upwards. On the right side is a young Fawn Deer complete with white spots and a glass eye. On the left is a colorful Fox that also has a inlaid glass eye. These two carved wooden animals with rock back and forth when the Cuckoo bird coo coos. The face of the clock is numbered in Roman numerals and marked 'Germany' at the bottom. The back of the clock is also marked 'Germany'. The upper peak of the Chalet has a little hinged Green door that is accented on the sides with hand painted colorful Eldeweiss flowers. The Cuckoo bird will appear on the half hour and hour. He will coo coo once on the half hour and as many times needed for the time of day , on the hour. There is a musical chime that sounds in the background each time he coo coos. Remember the Fox and Deer will also rock back and forth when this is happening. The movement is of the finest German quality. It is powered by two pine cone shaped metal weights that hang on Brass chains and operated by a lovely hand carved wooden pendulum that swings back and forth beneath the clock. The overall condition is excellent. Clock runs fine and all the animated functions work great. Buyer to pay shipping costs. Thanks for viewing.
