Seller: commits (9.119) 98.8%, Location: Yucaipa, California, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 113853629972 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 other items! This clock is 25 years old but I don't think it was ever really used! It is a large, deeply hand carved musical Hunters cuckoo clock that was created in the Black Forest of "Germany" by "Hubert Herr," one of the finest clock making families in this region of the world. It is most impressive and equally so in size too measuring about 16 1/2" high (from the tip of the wooden antlers to the bottom of the game bag and not counting the weights or pendulum), about 8 1/2" deep, and about 9 1/2" across the top. The clock is carved from cured and aged Linden wood which has been the preferred wood of carvers in the Black Forest since the 1870's. The case front is adorned with eight, large carved oak leaves and another oak leaf is found on the wooden pendulum. The carvings are exceptional, deep, intricate, and wavy which deeply accentuates the blended walnut finish; very nice! A carved wooden game bag complete with straps is found near the bottom, a carved wooden game bird is found perched on the right side of the dial and an equally impressive, carved wooden rabbit sets on the left side. The top is a separate piece that is attached to the case. It is equally magnificent and features a large wooden deer head complete with antlers and two wooden shotguns criss-crossed underneath. I don't think the antlers are wood but they sure look real! The wooden dial has a brown backdrop and features white Roman numerals to mark the hours and fancy matching hands to point out the time. There is a fully intact Certificate Label of Authenticity attached to the left side in front. There is a wooden back attached to the back which removes to allow access to the weight driven mechanical movement inside the case bearing the Hubert Herr name. A weight driven movement simply means that the chains need to be pulled occasionally to wind the clock, music, and cuckoo activities. The bellow tubes are in good shape and the tops look and sound good too! At the bottom of each hour, a colorful bird opens the small door to the right above the dial and stands in the doorway. He gives off a single cuckoo sound in tandem with a coiled cathedral chime before retreating back inside the clock, closing the door behind him. The bird appears again at the top of the hour and correctly cuckoos and chimes the current number of hours before he retreats to the confines of the inner clock and closing the door. Once he is safely inside, the small wooden door to the left above the dial opens and a colorful Bavarian man appears holding a zither in his lap. At that time, a "Swiss Reuge" music box inside the case plays a heavenly rendition of "The Happy Wanderer," one of the most loved and recognized tunes ever created. Once the song is over, the man returns to the safe confines of the clock and closes the door; absolutely fascinating! There is an intact label on the right side of the clock identifying the song title, country of origin, and Reuge/Romance manufacture. In addition, this clock has a metal lever on the left side that allows you to disable the cuckoo and music activities as you wish which is especially nice for light sleepers or when company visits. The clock does work quite well here, keeps good time, cuckoos as it should, and the music is quite nice too! Keep in mind that even though it looks quite new, this is an old clock so some adjustments or service may be necessary once the clock arrives at its new home. Even though the clock does appear to have been maintained some over the years, we do nonetheless recommend that the clock be serviced at least once every three years to keep it running strong. The clock comes complete as shown with three sets of attached metal chains, a wooden oak leaf pendulum, and three heavy pinecone shaped metal weights. I've looked the clock over fairly well and can't find any signs of use, missing parts, or damage; absolutely gorgeous on display! This clock is just stunning and a great nostalgic look back at the greatness of Black Forest workmanship. It is certain to turn a few heads when displayed in your home, office, or wherever it is that you care to showcase an unusual, musical, hand carved cuckoo clock with a real history behind it.
