HORTON'S ANTIQUE CLOCKS JULY 2019
Black Forest large and very rare carved cuckoo clock featuring a dog’s head at the bottom and a deer head on top, ca 1885. This is a very large wall cuckoo that stands 30” high and is 22” wide. The carvings are outstanding with a great deal of attention given to detail. We have sold a few cuckoos of this caliber and this one is the very best we have ever seen and is near mint considering how fragile it is to hang, carry, or ship. Note the large deer head with carved antlers, birds on the sides, and the carved dogs head and horn at the bottom. In between are leaves primarily. The large dial has old numerals and bone hands. The animals have glass eyes. The original carved antlers, pendulum and other attached parts are original and are of that period. The 8-day single fusee brass movement is functioning as intended. This clock sold just a few years ago for over $5000. $2000-$2500.
