This beautiful dark stained solid timber German cuckoo clock was hand crafted in the Black Forrest, Germany around 70 years ago.

The case of the clock was hand carved using locally sourced pine and decorated with beautifully carved birds and leaves, giving the clock a three dimensional character.

This very impressive clock measures 30cm long 22cm wide and 16cm deep in the body of the clock not counting the weights, pendulum and chains.

Best of all this clock has just been fully serviced (movement out, cleaned, oiled and adjusted and reinstalled) so it runs perfectly, doing everything it should. In addition new bellows were imported from Germany and fitted to the clock thus ensuring it has a wonderful strong cuckoo sound.

As a result this clock will give many years of fun, reliable and enjoyable timekeeping! It is sold with a 12 month warranty on the movement so bid with confidence

The dial is mint and features Roman numbers and pretty white hands. The clock has the traditional bird at the top with carved leaves decorating the case, pretty pine cone weights and a leaf pendulum.

Above the dial is a door out of which the traditional wooden carved cuckoo bird comes out on the half hour and hour, cuckooing up and down with beautiful bright colours.

Cuckoo clocks are fabulous talking points and great for teaching children how to tell the time. However as they have many moving parts so can be very expensive to have repaired.

Buy this genuine antique 8 day German cuckoo clock with complete confidence, priced to sell with a $1 reserve!
