Large 19" Rare Black Forest Swiss Mountain Dog Carved Mantle Clock Japy Freres For Sale

Large 19

Item Photos - picture hosting Item Photos - picture hosting An absolutely outstanding quality carved Black Forest Swiss Mountain Dog mantle clock. This gorgeous Mountain Dog sits proudly on top of a beautifully carved rocky mountain in which the clock is housed. The whole piece is carved to the highest standards with the Mountain Dog carved to perfection and looking extremely realistic, having the sweetest big two toned glass eyes. You cannot help but fall in love with him. All of the fine details are truly amazing but this piece looks far better in real life than any picture can show.
The clock has the original Japy Freres 8 day bell strike movement and it keeps perfect time.
Quality Black Forest Dogs are hard to come by and even less common in the form of a clock. This carving could have been done by Walter Mader who was renowned for his quality dog carvings. There is also a possibility that this dog clock could have been carved by Hans Huggler-Blatter or Fuchs Melchior who also specialized in carving dogs.
Weight 3.7kg. Please take a look at the other Black Forest items I have for sale.
