Here is a magnificent Black Forest musical cuckoo clock. This clock was carved in the Black Forest circa 1890-1910. Carvings are absolutely exquisite. All the carvings are done in walnut (hardwood)… There are no softwoods used on this clock. The motif is rare with the large grouse on the pediment. The hound is attacking the stamp head on. No dead animals makes this a romantic motif.
This one it all… pines, ferns, trees, ivy, mushrooms, layers and layers of carving. Imagine the time it took for the carver to make this magnificent clock over 100 years ago.
The clock measures over 5 feet in height, and 3 feet wide. The carvings extend out with a depth of 16″. It’s impossible to capture the size and quality of this piece in a photograph.
After the cuckoo calls a large music box is activated filling the room with music.
