Large Antique 1800's Phillip Haas & Sohn Phs Gothic Cathedral Cuckoo Clock Runs.:
Feel free to message me if you are interested in other clocks like this. I have many others i would consider selling or trading.
The higher end stuff will not likely hit .
I have a fantastic, ABSOLUTELY STUNNING LARGE (OVER 2 FEET TALL!) antique SPRING DRIVEN GOTHIC CATHEDRAL, MANTLE STYLE CUCKOO CLOCK.
SIGNED SAMUEL KAMMERER movement. PHS SIGNED CLOCK. With an EXTREMELY HIGH QUALITY MOVEMENT, 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 ORNATE TRIMS, and GOTHIC STYLINGS OF A MID-EVIL CATHEDRAL, ROUND CUCKOO DOOR! I BELIEVE THIS CLOCK WAS CARVED BY PETER WEHRLE. THE FAMOUS AND VERY RENOWNED CARVERS WHO PRODUCED MANY OF THE WELL KNOWN BEHA MODELS OF THE SAME STYLE. .. ALL ORIGINAL BONE NUMERALS OVER THE 6" DIAL and in excellent condition. it measures 27" tall!!!! and 17" wide..... this clock has been well taken care of for the last 150++ 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 LATE 1860'S or so.
. SAMUEL KETTER (THE SIGNED MOVEMENT MAKER) 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. RECENT RESEARCH INDICATES THAT WHILE S. KAMMERER WAS WELL KNOWN FOR MAKING THE LARGE 8-DAY MOVEMENTS FOR THE WEHRLE TRUMPETER FACTORY, HE IS NOW KNOWN TO HAVE BEEN MAKING OTHER HIGH QUALITY MOVEMENTS FOR OTHER MAKERS AS WELL. THIS EXACT CLOCK IS ONE OF THE EXAMPLES THAT BROKE THE PREVIOUS THOUGHT THAT KAMMERER MADE MOVEMENTS ONLY FOR THE WEHRLES. SO ITS A SIGNED KAMMERER MOVEMENT IN A SIGNED PHS CLOCK. FANTASTIC! THIS CLOCK IS "KEY" HISTORICALLY. It is a known fact that the higher end makers at times shared the carvers as well, and their services are seen in examples of all of the above named clock makers.
THIS Early VERY LARGE HEAVY PINNED BRASS plated 50 HOUR movement is in excellent condition showing very little wear to it. . ....VERY CLEAN adjustable BRASS pendulum . 100% ORIGINAL flute pipes are beautiful and correct, and THEIR MATCHING TOPS RECOVERED AS WELL AS USING FRESH PERIOD CORRECT LATHER ON THEM. this provides and extremely RARE ALL ORIGINAL TITLE to this clock. .. A++ SHAPE!... its a very nice piece. wonderful deep rich sounding cuckoo call.. 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.
I AM A PASSIONATE COLLECTOR OF RARE AND UNUSUAL BLACK FOREST CLOCKS. I AM ALWAYS INTERESTED IN NEW ACQUISITIONS AND ALSO HAVE OTHER CLOCKS LIKE THIS AND EVEN HIGHER END THAT I WOULD CONSIDER SELLING OR TRADING... PLEASE MESSAGE ME IF YOU MIGHT BE INTERESTED OR PERHAPS HAVE A CLOCK TO SELL OR TRADE. ALSO I ALWAYS ENJOY MEETING OTHER COLLECTORS WHO SHARE MY PASSION... :) I HAVE SHIPPED CLOCKS ALL OVER THE WORLD AND HAVE NEVER HAD ONE ARRIVE BROKEN! offer WITH CONFIDENCE. BUT KNOW THIS. A CLOCK THIS AGE ON ARRIVAL TAKES A LITTLE PATIENCE AND THOUGHT TO SET UP. IF IT DOES NOT RUN PERFECTLY ON SET UP, PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE DOING ANYTHING ELSE.. THEY CAN BE A LITTLE FUSSY, ESPECIALLY AFTER A TRIP THROUGH THE POST. ONCE ITS SET UP AND RUNNING IT WILL PROVIDE MANY YEARS OF ENJOYMENT.
