Also no potential risk of damage during transport. I posted a video on you tube for your viewing pleasure for an up close look and most importantly, an audible example of how it sounds. I strongly urge and highly recommend you to spend a few minutes and view them as it will more than likely answer any and all the questions you may have. Greetings all, Thank you, I appreciate your time and Interest. This is a very nice original unmolested piece, minimal losses to the full relief stag to the left of the dial, one ear missing and a small portion of one of his antlers, thats it. The rest of the clock is complete and in great shape, I really like this carving, very soft and feminine appeal to the carvings, they flow really well with all the soft rounded edges on the leaves as opposed to sharp leaf edges, a romantic motif with both live stags as opposed to fresh hunting kills that are usually seen. I suspect original wood antlers that are very well carved and very realistic looking. Beautifully carved stag head up top with gold toned glass eyes, super nice clock in great shape. Original matching weights, original proper fit chains and the quail and cuckoo birds are also very nice, it also retains its original carved bone hands as well. This clock is a nice large size as well, 25 top to bottom, 16 wide across the crown pediment, definitely cant miss this one on a wall. Lastly, the movement and bellows, movement is in terrific condition and functioning flawlessly, minimal pivot wear, a strong impulse beat on the time train, great shape. For those unaware, this is a quarter hour striking clock as opposed to your standard half hour cuckoo only striking clock, the quail in the left door calls the quarters and the cuckoo in the door on the right calls out the hours for the hours, 3 calls for 3 oclock, 4 for 4 and so on. The bellows sound off and function as they should but, in my opinion, could use some nice leather re covering to doll them up, the pipes and tops are also original to the clock. This one would be a great addition to anyones collection. Thats all I got, please watch the video I have posted on you tube, much more informative than this description, just copy and paste it and enjoy. Any questions, fire away, happy to help and Thank you again for your time, I really do appreciate it, best to you and your family, take care. Check out my other clock listings, any questions, feel free to ask, happy to accommodate. I pack my items the same as I like to receive them. Measurements: Clock/item is 25 H, 16 1/2 W, 12 D.

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.

1942 Smiths Type 2 RAF Station Sector Clock. Here is a rare opportunity to own one of the classic clocks as used in the WW2 Operations Rooms of RAF stations. A smart circular mahogany body holds the innovative 24hr dial featuring the colour change clock-face and rotary blued steel hour and minute hands, behind a circular glass pane held in a brass bezel. The distinctive screen-printed coloured segments were used by the HQ staff to determine the course of enemy pilots overhead when collating observations from spotters both in the air and on the ground. As well as these signature markings, the face features the Kings Crown over the RAF monogram. The clock retains the original, spun brass bezel and has the glass retainer ring in place on the inside. The clock is in fully serviced working order. It comes complete with a winding key and, as should be expected of its original role, is an example of the finest English clock-making (Smith Astral, Coventry). Being a non-fusee movement, this clock has the advantage of being less temperamental than pendulum driven type 1s and will run without being hung exactly straight on the wall. Finally, of note, the back box that contains the movement is stamped’Smith 1942′ as well as’GVI’ (the Kings cypher), it also has the original brass fixture for hanging. The clocks face has a diameter of 14 inches (35.5 cm), the full body extends to a diameter of 16 inches (40.5 cm). The circular body is 1 inch (2.5 cm) deep, and the back’salt’ box extends a further 3 inches (7.5 cm), so 4 inches in total (10 cm). The clock weighs 3.67 Kg. The dials on type 2 clocks are normally’tinned’ which gives some protection from corrosion and explains why most are in better condition than their predecessors. Only small signs of wear around the winding aperture and adjustment slot are detectable, plus a gentle yellowing of the white face. None of these signs of ageing detracts from the clocks impressive cachet. Regarding the bezel, the brass has tarnished but the hinge is smooth and strong and the glass immaculate!
