Seller: shiny69 (546) 100%, Location: Brighton, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 332595244838 This is a relisted itemAfter sustaining a minor knock to the top crown I had to end the original listing as I needed to carry out an emergency repair.I sincerely apologise to anyone who had previously bid on this item. I am selling a very rare antique, German, Black Forest trumpeter mantel clock.The clock is in very good working order.The clock sounds using 3 trumpet bellows and chimes the number of hours on the hour and once on the half hour as the trumpeter figure appears through the double door above the dial.The movement is very clean and works very well. The clock runs for approximately 52 hours on a full wind & the musical side of the movement needs winding at least once a day.The bellows look to be in good condition with no holes in the leather anywhere.The case is in reasonable condition and has had a couple of minor repairs in places, mainly to the top crown where the very top carved decoration has been glued back on and has the very top tip missing (see last photo)The 15cm (5 3/4") dial has a small split on the left hand side and has been restored with new numerals. The hands are not original and have been hand made by someone out of metal. The top hinge on the right hand side door has broken and some of the oak veneer has peeled off slightly. The carving on the right side under the roof looks to have reattached at some point. I have made a new back cover for the clock as the original was missing when I bought the clock. After the top crown became detached I thought it best to keep it detachable like it would have been when it was first made as I felt this keeps it more original and also helps reduce the risk of damage during shipping. This is a beautiful clock which based on research dates to around the late 1800's. I cannot find a maker mark or stamp anywhere so I can't say who the clock is made by. The clock does not come with a key but does comes with a pendulum (not original). This is a fairly large clock measuring 54cm (21 1/4") high with it's top crown attached, 46cm high without top crown, 37cm (14 1/2") wide & 19.5cm (7 3/4") deep. Please study the photo's and video carefully as they form part of the description and feel free to ask any questions you may have, I can supply more photos on request should you need them. I have embedded a video below showing the clock working which can also be found at this address should the video not show. https://youtu.be/pnv3P5KnzKU Rare Antique Black Forest Trumpeter Clock - YouTube Video will open in a new window [isdntekvideo] Condition: See photos, video and item description for condition, Material: Wood, Clock Type: Trumpeter, Age: Antique, Style/ Origin/ Theme: German, Features: Chimes
