I have a fantastic old LARGE (2ft) antique FUSEE SPRING DRIVEN SAMUEL KAMMERER SIGNED GOTHIC MANTLE CUCKOO CLOCK . 8 day CLOCK VERY RARE EXAMPLE!! TOP QUALITY SOLID OAK GOTHIC CASE IN AMAZING DETAIL, EXCEPTIONAL PIECE AND HIGH RELIEF, VERY UNUSUAL. . its in EXCELLENT condition overall... BEAUTIFUL DEEP RICH WOOD TONES! .has a deep rich RED tone to it. TAKE A MOMENT AND LOOK AT HOW HIGH THE QUALITY IS ON THE CARVINGS. WOW! VERY ORNATE ORIGINAL UNUSUAL MATCHING BONE HANDS (PRETTY NEAT)
AT THE TOP OF THE HOUR AND THE HALVES THE CUCKOO EMERGES AND CALLS THE TIME. IT HAS ITS CLEAN ORIGINAL WINDING KEY AS WELL. THE CASE IS CONTRASTED BEAUTIFULLY BY BLACK TRIMS THAT REALLY SET IT APART .. ALL ORIGINAL BONE NUMERALS OVER THE 7" DIAL and in excellent condition. it measures 25" tall and 15" wide..... this clock has been well taken care of for the last 100++ years!!!... TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICS! wonderful SUPER HIGH QUALITY AND HIGH RELIEF WOOD carving design to the case VERY ORNATE! NO BREAKS REPAIRS OR MISSING PIECES. WONDERFUL ALL ORIGINAL AND VERY CLEAN CONDITION. I will not date this clock exactly but i make it to be about 1870 or so. THE LOW PITCH OF THE ROOF SUGGEST IT COULD BE EARLIER. . SAMUEL KETTER is one of the HIGHEST quality makers of his day, and his name is right up there with the others like KETTERER, BEHA, WEHRLE, JEAGLER, FLEIG, KLAUSMANN, BEUERELE, GHS AND PHILLIP HAAS. It is a known fact that the higher end makers at times shared the carvers, and their services are seen in examples of all of the above named clock makers. SAMUEL KETTERER IS REGARDED BY MANY AS BEING THE FINEST QUALITY MAKER OF MOVEMENTS BAR NONE. HE is also well known for having been the maker of the very large very high quality movements in the big 8-day Wehrle trumpeter clocks.
Early VERY LARGE HEAVY PINNED BRASS plated FUSEE movement is in excellent condition showing very little wear to it. . ....VERY CLEAN adjustable original pendulum . 100% ORIGINAL flute pipes are beautiful and correct, and THEIR MATCHING TOPS AS WELL FRESH PERIOD CORRECT LATHER ON THEM!!! this provides and extremely RARE ALL ORIGINAL TITLE to this clock. ..

IMPOSSIBLE to find in newer clocks...sounds like a real cuckoo bird! ... . please allow the pics to answer questions you have and feel free to ask. . This clock is in amazing condition. EXCELLENT RUNNING ORDER, it was left alone and preserved in its original state... A rare find.
