Cuckoo Black Forest Clock Double Fusee-for Restoration For Sale
CUCKOO BLACK FOREST CLOCK DOUBLE FUSEE-For restoration
This is a very nice cuckoo clock from the Black Forest of Germany which has a very nice double fusee movement of unusual design which is in working condition.
The carved case is basically complete but has cracked ovet time and has been repaired by a rank amatuer who looks to have used a two part epoxy to glue the carvings so in order to bring this clock back to his former glory these old repairs need to be made good by cleaning the joints and re gluing them properly.The top cresting is original but in three parts and was glued on the clock instead of the pins and hooks.There are some very minor losses to the carvings such as some antlers but basically the clock is 98 % complete.
The finish is original and the colour good.
As can be seen from the images this is a very nice clock with deep relief to the carvings andwould not need too much work to bring to back to its former glory.
The brass skeltonised movement uses stepped plates and is of a very unusual design.It is superficially dirty but in working condition.The hands are carved bone and the pendulum is original to the clock.
Thix clock is approximately 26 inches long (excluding pendulum)and 18 inches wide
I have taken the images with the clock laid on its back to show roughly how the clock will look.
This item dates circa 1880 and is a genuine antique.The movement is original to the case.

If you wish to use your own courier I will do all I can to assist.
I only charge actual costs incurred for shipping BUT I will use a large box with plenty of packing to avoid damage and this will make shipping (particulary to foreign countries) a little more expensive due to volumetric weight.
Custom made boxes,bubble wrap and peanuts all cost money and the cost of these materials will be added to the cost of shipping.For example a Vienna wall clock costs me £15 in materials.I do not charge for my time for packing.
Every care will be taken when packing but no liability will be accepted for damage by the couriers and it must be remembered that it is virtually impossible to guarrantee 100 percent that a peice of glass may not be damaged on the odd occasion.
