BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE "JUNGHANS" SPRING WOUND CUCKOO CLOCK
ANTIQUE "JUNGHANS" SPRING WOUND CUCKOO CLOCK
You are offerding on a wonderful antique spring wound "JUNGHANS" cuckoo clock. I believe this is classified as a 30 hour cuckoo even though it will run for better than 3 days. The clock is really in amazing shape for it's age though it will need some attention. The clock measures 16" tall with the crown on, 13" wide, and 8 1/2" deep. It has an oak color to it but I believe it is made from Linden wood. The case is in excellent condition with no breaks or previous repairs except for one leaf tip on the right leaf that is missing. The crown is fantastic with great detail. The dial is 5 1/2" in diameter and is made of zinc and covered with the original paper. As you can see, the paperhas split in two places and small pieces are missing. The bone hands are original but have been broken and reglued. The original cuckoo bird still looks good and works. Both flute tubesI believe are original but one has had a newer top put on. The pendulum is one of the largest I have seen on a cuckoo. It does have a split down the top of the stick and might need to be glued. The movement was really dirty when I boughtit and I don't believe it had ever beendisassembled. I completely overhauled the movement, ultrasonically cleaned it, and lubricated it and it runs very well. No bushings were needed. The only thing I noticed was that another suspension spring had been put onthat is a little to long and might need to be shortened a bit. The back of the movement has Junghans logo on it with A10 underneath it. The number 118 is also stamped at the upper left of the movement. The time side of the movment runs strong but the strike side seems to labor as the "cuckoo" sequence is slow. The fan can be adjusted and spins smoothly. These old spring wound cuckoos are really getting hard to find and with a little attention, this one can be a real show piece.
