You are looking at an. Antique French/Austrian Fancy Picture Gold Color Frame Wooden Clock, an Austrian Grande Sonorie. 15.25 wide, 21.75 tall, 5.25 deep. The front door is glass. When opened, the key can be used to wind the movement. The back has a wooden door that can be slid open to see the movement and pendulum. Unfortunately, the bells are missing. The clock is 30 hour and runs strong and keeps accurate time. In the front, you can see fancy crafted ornaments, all around the clock. The clock dial is brass. In the front, you can see an open window to see the pendulum moving. This clock was made in the early 19. Century, around 1810 – 1840. Id rate it very well-preserved for its age. This clock is in good working condition. I tested the chime movement, it does work, just no bells. The previous owner put a tie on it so the chime movement wouldnt move.

After countless trips to the kids’ schools for show-and-tell and the passage of time, I find myself using it less and less. The player always has and does now work well. The spring is strong and, with a little persistence, the crane holds the horn at the correct angle so that it does not exert too much pressure on the cylinder. It comes with a Model C reproducer along with everything else seen in the pictures. Over the years, I have assembled over 80 unduplicated cylinder titles with everything from Vaudeville acts, to parodies of Black Americans of the day to many musical selections to diverse to describe. About ten years ago, an amateur wood working friend of mine build the stand on which the player rests. It is constructed of oak and has six drawers just tall enough to hold an upright cylinder in its case. He did a good job of matching it to a picture I gave him and it really does look like it’s from the early 1900s. Video will open in a new window.

For WW1 or WW2 MILITARY BICYCLES. WITH THESE, YOU CAN CONVERT YOUR OWN BICYCLE INTO. A REPLICA MILITARY MODEL. Not every type of rifle clip fits every vintage bicycle. But these are designed to be as versatile as possible. You can see from the photos below how they fit. You need to cut up an old leather belt and glue it inside the rifle clips. To finish them off (though I’ve not done this on the bike illustrated here). And maybe apply a thicker coat of paint, old nuts and bolts, etc. These replicas are hand-made as close as possible to the original pattern. OPEN SIDED, 2nd Pattern. (1 Front piece + 1 Rear piece). (VAT included within EU – tell me if you need a VAT receipt). WAR OFFICE 1901’2nd PATTERN’ RIFLE CLIPS (REPLICA). During WW1, all the major combatants deployed bicycles. Its not possible to know exactly how many military cyclists there were, but its estimated that at least 100,000 British soldiers used bicycles in some capacity and at least 150,000 French and Belgians. A bicycle was an ideal means of transportation as it was comparatively lightweight it could be carried over obstructions and as well as being ridden could be loaded with equipment and pushed. It was particularly well-suited for conveying despatches, guerrilla action, patrols and reconnaissance a motorcycle was faster, but a bicycle was silent. OWNER: The Online Bicycle Museum.

Stunning Rare Antique German Black Forest Gk Bahnhausle Railroad Cuckoo Clock
We have a large number of vintage and antique clocks currently listed along with an equally large number of music boxes and other very nice collectibles. Be sure to have a look at our. This is an absolutely breathtaking antique cuckoo clock that was produced about 120 years ago in the Black Forest of Germany by Gebruder Kuner and marketed under their G. It is referred to as a Bahnhausle (Train House) clock or Railroad clock since it was the German railroads who initially commissioned their local manufacturers to create a common design for use in their railroad stations around the 1890’s. The clock was so popular that a few were made for households around the world. This clock is one of the finest I’ve ever seen and it still works quite well here. It is an impressive size too measuring about 17 1/2″ high (from the tip of the leaves on the upper frame to the bottom of the finial on the bottom and not counting the weights or pendulum), about 6 1/2″ or so at its deepest point, and about 13 across the top. The clock is carved from cured and aged Linden wood that is grown nearly exclusively at certain altitudes of the Black Forest. It has a beautiful mahogany finish and features deeply carved fancy fret work hanging from the roof eaves on either side of the case, fancy round finials on the lower frame, an escutcheon on the left eave, another in the middle, and one missing on the right. There is a fancy square carving on the left side of the lower frame and on the right too along with two fancy wooden finials as well. The case is adorned with some of the nicest carvings I’ve seen in ages and 15 deeply carved wooden grape leaves and clusters of grapes near the bottom, both sides, and on the top as well. There is also a large, carved wooden grape leaf on the custom-designed wooden pendulum too. The wooden dial has a black backdrop and features easy to read Roman numerals to mark the hours and fancy hands to point out the time. The numbers are the old style and nailed on to the dial, not glued on. There is a hinged wooden door on either side of the case. These are secured with a metal latch and open easily to allow access to the clock movement should any adjustments ever become necessary from this angle. The clock has a fitted wood back and is secured with a metal latch. The door easily removes to allow access to an early style of a weight driven movement bearing the G. A weight driven movement simply means that the chains need to be pulled occasionally to wind the clock and cuckoo activity. The tall wooden bellow whistle tubes are in good shape and the trapezoid tops look and sound good but a bit soft. At the bottom of each hour, a colorful wooden bird with flapping wings opens the small fancy wooden door above the dial and stands in the doorway. He gives off a single cuckoo sound in tandem with a nice sounding coiled chime inside the case and when the cuckoo activity is finished, the bird retreats back inside the clock, closing the door behind him. The bird reappears at the top of each hour and correctly cuckoos/chimes the current number of hours before going back inside the clock; fascinating! The clock works quite well here, cuckoos as it should, and keeps good time too. Keep in mind this is an old clock and we do not know the service history though the movement does show signs of having been maintained over the years. Nonetheless, some adjustments or service may be necessary once the clock makes the journey to its new home. We always advise our clock customers to service their antique or vintage clocks at least once every three years. Doing so will preserve this classic clock and keep it running strong for years to come. The clock comes complete as shown with two sets of attached metal chains, a large carved grape leaf pendulum, and two very heavy pinecone shaped metal weights. I’ve looked the clock over fairly well and noted only modest wear. I did see that one of the finial mounts on the bottom left has a break to it and the leaf on the very top is missing. There is a large chip on the wooden pendulum and hard to see evidence of an old repair here and there but still, it is absolutely gorgeous on display! This clock is one of the finest examples of Black Forest craftsmanship I have seen in a very long time. No matter where you display it in your home or office, it will get noticed for its uniqueness, high quality, and just Wow! You won’t find another quite like it! If you like this item and I’m sure you do, then I know you’ll love the other items. Check back frequently since we’re listing a lot of antique/vintage items as time allows! We’d be glad to send more pictures if available; just ask! My wife and I have been accumulating lots of nice antiques and other collectors items over the years. But now is a good time to start clearing out the things we no longer wish to keep. We do all that we can to accurately describe each item to the best of our ability. Day following the close of sale.
