Description

A very well carved late 19th century Black Forest shelf cuckoo clock with the original matching bracket.
The beautifully carved shelf case features a cuckoo in flight on the roof gable. The roof has a carved shingle effect, over the carved vine leaves which adorn the house and fence.
The two-train 8-day movement is spring-driven; the time-side is on a fusee, the strike side is on a going barrel. The hand painted articulated cuckoo calls on the hour and the passing of the half hour. The hourly cuckoo call is accompanied by a gong strike.
The movement is in excellent condition, the bellows having been recovered in the recent past. Although working well, the movement will be overhauled and the clock guaranteed for 3 years.
The dial has the original Roman numerals and matching bone hands, quite plain in design.
The back door carries the gong in the usual fashion. Above the gong is a hand-written 2083, the makerís model number.
Height of the cuckoo clock (excluding the bracket) 55cms
Height with the bracket, 75cms
Bracket width: 40cms
Bracket Depth: 23cms
Internal Ref: 1650
