~circa 1880~ Beautiful Antique Gothic Style Cuckoo Clock ~spring-driven~:
*For your viewing and offerding pleasure, we present to you this rare and complete, Circa 1880, Alexander Fleig cuckoo clock.*
This beautiful Gothic cuckoo clock is by Alexander Fleig, Circa 1880. There is not alot of information available about Fleig, and in some books there is a reference to an Andreas Fleig, but we believe it is the same person.Fleig was a movement maker and bought his cases from case-makers in the Black Forest. As you can see, this lovely case is similar to Beha case model # 597, as shown in Justin J. Millers book on page 11 of the Appendices (Beha catalogs). It would have been carved by the same case-maker, probably in Hornberg.
Fleig's movements are not usually marked or signed, but the "A" frame, house shape of the back plate is indicative of his working style. This clock also features a 'silk suspension' for the pendulum, a sign of a high quality movement and a high-end clock. This movement was fully serviced in January, 2013 by a Master Clock Maker, who was trained in Furtwangen and is an expert on Black Forest clocks.
This all original time-piece is in excellent condition, and runs and operates flawlessly. You will not find a better example of a Fleig cuckoo clock anywhere else in the world.
***These unique and antique cuckoo clocks usually do require minor adjustments after shipping and handling.***
Good luck and happy offerding!
