Large Antique 35" Black Forest Cuckoo Quail Clock~american Cuckoo Clock Co~nice:
GREATCUCKOO QUAIL CLOCK
Up for sale is avery big and beautiful Black Forest Cuckoo Quail clock. Sold by the American Cuckoo Clock Co., out of PA, the entire clock is of German manufacture (case, movement, weights, etc.). Case is in very good condition, with a great patina and lighter case color than someof the oldBlack Forest Cuckoo Clocks. Case measures 35"x23"x11.5". This is alarge impressive cuckoo.
Carvings are thick and in very good condition with little loss. Old repair on crown isvisible from the back; and there is a splitin the carved wood at the bottom of the case front (see photos). The dog chasing the deer is missing part of its rear left leg, but is not very noticable from the front and would not be difficult to cast or carve because one could usethe other back leg as a guide. On the top of the case is a large (15" wingspan) eagle starting to take flight. On the bottom is a hunting dog chasing a deer (deer missing antlers). The carved dog plugs into the side of the deer so when in place, the dog is off the ground off mid stride. The carved ground that the deer and dog are running on is nicely designed. The entire case is heavily carved with oak leaves and branches.
Clock has ringed 7" dial with nailed on numerals. Carved bone hands with repair to minute hand. Cuckoo doors are nicely carved and original. Carved crown piece is attached with L brackets. Clock retains original oak leaf pendulum and 3 pinecone weights. Back access door has original American Cuckoo Clock labeland gongis original to clock.
Thick brass plate movement runs and operates as it should.Great original cuckoo and quail birds with moving beaks and wings. 'Made in Germany'stamped into the back of the movement, no other identifying marks. Stamped on the back of the case is '554' (model number?).
Don't miss thisbeauty. I really hate parting with this beautiful clock, but as I am downsizing, some have to go. I will be selling many others in the months ahead.
