Unusual Antique Black Forest Carved Novelty Moving Eye Dog Clock C1900 For Sale
UNUSUAL ANTIQUE BLACK FOREST CARVED NOVELTY MOVING EYE DOG CLOCK c1900
UNUSUAL ANTIQUE BLACK FOREST NOVELTY MOVING EYE DOG CLOCK c1900 NOT OSWALD?
If you collect novelty clocks, or moving eye clocks, then this lovely little clock could be the perfect addition to any collection.
Carved in the form of a very sweet looking dog, as the clock ticks away, the eyes revolve (about one full rotation per minute), thus changing the expression on the little dogs face. One minute a guilty looking puppy, the next the soulful, pleading eyes of man's best friend...superb.
While the eyes rotate, the time can be read off the clock dial set to the chest of the dog. The clock runs well, even keeping fairly good time, wound from the rear by the fixed winder. It stands 8 inches high, 5 inches wide and just 3 inches deep.
As I hope the pictures show, the condition is wonderful. No damage to speak of, and a glorious colour and patina earned over 100 years. I have guessedthe age to be c1900, but as there is no makers marks I can't be definite, although the naive carving and wonderful colour could put it a little earlier.
Certainly a talking point. Definitely cute. And surely a worthy addition to any home or collection.
If an extra photo or question answered will help, please just drop me a line.
Good hunting in 2013
