Antique German Railroad Cuckoo Clock Black Forest Germany
Hello and thank you for observing this clock. This is an antique German black forest Railroad cuckoo clock made in the Black Forest in Germany. These clocks were manufactured for use in the Train Stations so people could know the time. This clock has very detailed carving of grapevines and the leaves. This can be seen in the video below. I have cleaned and oiled the movement and cleaned the case and all of the hardware. I also installed new bellow tops, new hands and new numbers on the 6 inch dial. The measurements of this clock are 20 inches height with the crown attached not counting the pendulum, 16 inches width and 7 inches depth. I pack my clocks well using new cardboard boxes, and new bubble wrap plastic. I also insure every package and include instructions for setting up and operation of the cuckoo clock. If you have any questions feel free to ask and I will be happy to answer them. Have a good day. My interest in Cuckoo clocks began 30 years ago when I was stationed in Germany. I was amazed by the artistic woodcarving skills I witnessed while they brought the clocks into existence. From that point on I began to collect cuckoo clocks and started my studies into restoring and repairing them. I enjoy people being happy with their clocks and my feedback results show their satisfaction.

This item is in the category “Collectibles\Clocks\Antique (Pre-1930)\Cuckoo, Black Forest”. The seller is “wunderbarcuckoo” and is located in Cedar, Minnesota.

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. Set up instructions included. Pendulum may need minor adjustment after arriving at destination.

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.

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 20 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″ or so at its deepest point, and about 14 1/2 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 gorgeous inlays all over the front. There is a large, fancy fret work hanging from the roof eaves on either side of the case, fancy round finials on the lower frame, and two fancy wooden finials as well. The case is adorned with some of the fanciest carvings I’ve seen in ages and fifteen deeply carved wooden grape leaves and clusters of grapes near the bottom. 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. The top is a separate carving and is not held in place; it’s just sitting there. You may wish to attach it more permanently… That’s up to you. 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. I believe the back is a replacement door and there is a mostly intact label on it that has an “American Cuckoo Clock” name on it along with operating instructions. The door easily removes to allow access to an early style of a weight driven movement. 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 tops look and sound good too.

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 didn’t see any damage or missing parts. I think the upper frame may be a replacement but if it is, it is a good one.
