Rare Signed Oswald Osuhr Fine Carved Rolling Eyes German Novelty "owl" Clock:
RARE SIGNED OSWALD OSUHR FINE CARVED ROLLING EYES GERMAN NOVELTY "OWL" CLOCK
SELLING @ !!
Here I am pleased to offer a truly exceptional & rare "rolling eyes" novelty clock made by Osuhr & Oswald. This German clock is an exceptional display of fine carving and workmanship. The clock is 100% original with no restoration or touch-up. Notice that this clock tells time with its eyes - the hour with the left eye and the minute with the right. The back cover on the clock is signed "OSUHR - D.R.P - D.R.G.M- Patented U.S.A Aug. 31st, 1926 - Patented Gr. Brit Nr. 276738 1926 - Brevet Brevetto Patente. The movement is signed "Oswald" and stamped with a date 10.29. The clock is running strong but could use a good oiling - I cannot guarantee it will keep good time. This is quite sizeable for one of these clocks - the largest I have seen. It measures 9 1/2 inches high and about 3 inches by 4 inches. It weighs in at about 2 lbs. The clock is in excellent original condition with 100% original finish. There is a small chip to the corner of the carved book on which the owl perches. I have taken a close photo to show this. It is hardly noticeable when the clock is sitting on a shelf. I think this is a very early example of an Oswald clock. They later switched the eyes to lighter colours so the time could be told easier. The carving on this example is much finer than any other example I could find. This clock would make a welcome addition to any serious collection of novelty clocks. I bet you won't find another one like this!!
