Here is another fantastic piece we recently acquired. This cuckoo clock is large measuring one meter in height. The case is carved in walnut and features an unusual hunters motif.
Instead of the traditional stag on the pediment with crossed rifles this example has a large full relief eagle. There are no oak leaves on this clock instead you will find cattails, grasses, ivy and other water plants. No powder horn around the dial or game pouch at the base.
The traditional hare seen down the left ind side of the case is a one piece carving including the powder horn the rope that is tied around his leg is fully cut through and wraps around the branch that extend out of the case above.
On the right side of the case is a water fowl. Excellent carving and a nice variation from the traditional pheasant.
This large cuckoo clock would be perfect for a cabin lodge or restaurant. It is large enough it put a presence on the room, but still small enough to look proportional in a house with 8 foot ceilings.
