Black Forest Cuckoo Clock, c.1870

At Antiques Gothic on Ruby Lane today:

“Here’s a sweet, very early wall cuckoo clock in the Gothic revival style which was popular in the 1860’s and 1870’s. Carved of walnut, the cuckoo has its original bone hands and cuckoo bird on the wooden perch. The whistles and numbers were replaced, as was the top ornament which is from a Bahnhausle style clock and can be removed if the buyer prefers. Clock is running and striking fine, but no guarantee some adjustment will not be needed after shipping. Clock has a 30 hour weight drive wooden plate brass gear movement typical of the 1870’s. Measures 18.5” H to top of ornament and 12.5” W at crown. A nice old cuckoo in a style we don’t often find today.”
