Schirrmann, Paris marked Black Forest hand carved 19 3/4" tall mantel clock with ornate foliate decoration and two HUGE long-tailed game bird figural top! WOW, isn't this one exquisite! Exactly what comes to mind when you think of the fine old museum quality Black Forest clocks, isn't it. Beautiful, highly ornate foliate carving covering the base and the "Fruits of the Hunt" style is as attractive as they come. The clock case with an attached solid wood base or plinth bringing the total height to an impressive 19 3/4". The upper portion of the case, consisting of those gorgeous leaves & game bird figures, has been carved from one large solid block of what is likely rosewood given the heavy weight that you don't find with other Black Forest pieces that have been carved in Linden wood. Just imagine the painstakingly long process of getting from such a large block of wood to what you see here. Amazing! The detail and artistry are superb, don't you just love those overly long tail feathers extending down the outer sides of the case. If you look closely at the brass clock hands, there's even a wonderful dolphin figure on the minute hand extending from the scrolling tendrils & foliage. Fantastic condition, far better than you would expect with a 100 year old wooden clock and the overall visual and decorative appeal are undeniable. A rare beauty, don't miss it! Very good to excellent condition, age & materials in mind. As you can see, and as one would expect, there are some visible worm or bug holes but nothing active. Possibly a few small chips to leaf tips but I see no breaks or repairs to note. The clock face has all of the numeral plaques, all in enamel on convex copper with blue enamel numerals. There is also an enamel plaque along the bottom noting the maker or, more likely, French retailer of the piece and reads "Ed. Schirrmann, 7 Rue Royale, Paris". No chips or damage to the enamel numeral plaques but there is are two hairlines to the enamel retailer panel. The clock mechanism is WORKING and also bears the same marking for the maker or retailer. The clock does run, chimes once on the half hour and as many times as the hour on the hour. See pictures for all measurements. Return Policy: We always honor a 3-day return on our items, and guarantee them to be as described. Money back, less shipping costs, which are not refundable, so ask questions if necessary. We're easy to deal with. Shipping and Handling Policy: You are very important! Our fine inventory is very important. And your ranking of our performance is also very important! We wish to keep our 4.9 - 5 star ratings in all categories. Customer satisfaction is paramount with us, so if you're thinking we have not deserved your highest marks, please contact us and allow us to be sure your concerns are completely satisfied before you rank us. We aim for 5-star transactions every day, and depend upon you to tell us directly if we have not yet met that standard for your transaction. Thank you! We most often use USPS for our shipping needs but will be happy to ship by another carrier if you prefer. We charge only actual postage & insurance, never a handling fee and never for packaging materials. Ebay is now requiring that our clients rank us on "shipping". The shipping price, speed and handling are actually under the sole control of the delivering postal agency, not Antiques & Uncommon Treasure so please remember that and leave us high DSR rankings. As always, please also feel free to contact us if you have any problems or concerns, we'll do what we can to ensure a happy and mutually enjoyable transaction. Insurance has been eliminated as an option by ebay, forcing us sellers to either ship your items without insurance or assume that expense also. We always insure our items BUT, more importantly, pack them extremely well knowing that most are not replaceable. Again, damage in transit, while rare in our experience, is due to the postal agency handling and not caused by Antiques & Uncommon Treasure. Please remember that when leaving DSR ratings. Thanks! Our shipping days are Tuesday and Friday, paid items will be shipped on the first shipping day after payment is received (except when special circumstances exist). We prefer to use USPS whenever possible, and require all packages to be insured. If you prefer another method of shipment, please mention it. We charge only actual expense of shipment/insurance, except in the case of larger items which must have special wood crates built. Wood crate charge, when applicable, is a flat $35.00 in addition to actual postage & insurance charges. Other Information: 8.75% sales tax applicable as of April 1st, 2009 for shipments & sales within the state of California, no exceptions. If you are within CA and are a dealer buying for resale, you must provide us your active resale certificate # and acknowledgment of intent to resell or we will have to collect sales tax. No exceptions. Auction Payment Methods: Paypal: E-Check, Visa, Mastercard, etc..
