Seller: saved400days (1.706) 100%, Location: Port Leyden, New York, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 174100197450 Old German Black Forest Cuckoo and Quail Clock Click images to enlarge Description This is a somewhat rare to find and nice condition cuckoo and quail clock that was made in the Black Forest of Germany for the Forestville Clock Co. right around 70 years ago. This clock runs, cuckoos and quail chirps properly. The quail chirps once on the quarter hour, twice on the half hour, three times on the three quarter hour and four times on the hour, followed by the cuckoo calling out the number of the hour. The case is in very nice shape for its age. Since it is rather old and in the original finish, you can expect to see some wear, but this clock has been well taken care of. It is an earlier all wood case with a wooden dial. It is a nice size clock, measuring approximately 15 ½" from the top bird to the bottom of the case (not counting the pendulum and weights) and 11 ¼" wide across the top piece. This is a well proportioned, impressive looking original Black Forest clock with a great cuckoo and quail sound that your family and friends are sure to enjoy. Payment If your payment needs to be delayed, that will be fine as long as you stay in close contact with us and send it when you say you're going to. We accept Paypal, plus others. Any payment that requires time to process (clear) will delay shipping. Email us with questions concerning other forms of payment. Shipping Most clocks will be shipped within 5 business days of received payment. We like to give each clock sold a final test run and observation before packing. This helps ensure that the new owner will have a satifying experience. All items are carefully packaged with around 1 ½" of packing material between your purchase and the box. All items are shipped insured. We never anticipate damage but in the event that an incident occurs, we will help with insurance claims as much as possible. Be very sure to save all packaging material if there is a problem. Normally, all shipping costs are based on actual price for estimated weight plus a minimal fee for packaging material and insurance. In rare instances there may be a flat rate shipping price quoted. Smaller items can be combined to save shipping costs. Because clocks require large boxes, Priority Mail is expensive. We quote FedEx prices in most cases. *For any shipments other than the lower 48 United States, contact us first for a shipping quote before bidding. Do not go by the shipping calculator.* Terms of Sale All sales are final (with the exception noted below). We try to keep an excellent feedback rating by being fair and honest. We try to describe all items accurately so that you pretty much know exactly what to expect when your purchase arrives. It should be understood before bidding that all antique clocks, unless otherwise noted, have knicks, scratches, tarnished brass, stains and dents which are normally aquired from long term honest use. It is nearly impossible to find one in "mint" condition. If a clock has damage from misuse, it will be noted. If a clock is sold as "in running condition," it means that we have test run it before listing it and feel confident that it will run for you. If a clock is running properly when it arrives, that is about the best we can do. We cannot guarantee that a clock will not break down, but will not sell anything that we expect to break down without noting that it is being sold as parts or for restoration. In the event that you are not happy, please first go back and read the description to make sure that the item was not misrepresented, and then email us. If we missed seeing some hidden damage, we will refund your money, both purchase price and shipping both ways. *This does NOT include items sold as parts, not working or "as is." All sales for this type of item are final.* About Us My daughter and I are collectors/restorers and have been working together selling online since 2005. We spend quite a bit of time traveling around the northeast buying clocks and clock parts, and many times we are able to buy large quantities from clock makers or clock dealers who are downsizing or closing out altogether. I have been a member of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors since 1978 and restoring clocks since 1976, so you can buy from us with confidence. Contact Us You may notice that since joining eBay in 2000 our feedback has been positive. We only receive feedback about a third of the time, which means we have actually had several thousand positive transactions over the past 20 years that are not recorded in the feedback system. We would prefer not to deal with anyone who might consider leaving us a negative feedback. We try to describe everything exactly as it is and if we do something wrong, we will make it right. That being said, rather than give us a bad feedback, first give us a chance to return your money. If you email us on Saturday, it may not be until Monday before you hear back from us. We do not use our computers on Sunday, the Lord's day, but will answer any emails Monday through Saturday and do whatever we can to resolve any problems. Please do not wait until late in an auction to ask questions (we may not be here). *Also, please do not ask us to falsify shipping records for international shipping. Honesty is always the best policy.* Images sell! Get Supersized Images & Free Image HostingCreate your brand with Auctiva's Customizable Templates.
