Item:372470380624Antiques, Collectables, Paintings, Fine Ceramics and Glass HUBERT HERR BLACK FOREST GERMAN CUCKOO CLOCK CARVED & HANDPAINTED This superb Black Forest, German made cuckoo clock, is adorned with carvings of cuckoo on the top of the clock and 5 leaves surround the clock housing. The clock is wood with cream ground and embellished with hand painted flowers and gilded highlights to the leaves and cuckoo. The clock chimes and cuckoos on the hour and half hour and the bird makes its appearance from the door. It keeps good time, but if it needs adjustment, this is done by moving the leaf on the pendulum up and down. Sliding the leaf downwards you slow the time, vice versa. The height from the top of the cuckoo to the bottom of the case is approximately 16 inches. Widest part of case when mounted 8½ inches. Depth from wall approximately 7 inches. Full length from top of bird to bottom of chain 47 inches. It displays most attractively and also makes a great time piece. The brass mechanism looks clean and the bellows have no damage. The mechanism is marked as follows “HUBURT HURR TRIBERG GERMANY” Information about Herr cuckoo clocks This traditional firm already began to produce carvings for cuckoo clocks in the 19th century. From their initial beginnings in an old farmhouse to the official founding of the company by Hubert Herr and continuing through today's management by Klaus, Reinhard and Hugo Herr, Hubert Herr's clock factory is still firmly in the family's hands, now in the fifth generation. In the choice of materials Hubert Herr Clocks attaches great importance to a connection with its region: wood from domestic spruce, fir and alder trees that grew in altitudes of 400-600 meters offer the highest quality for the production of the case. Only the best linden wood from the Black Forest can be considered for the elaborate carvings of Hubert Herr wall clocks. This item can be collected from the NE England or Near Keswick Cumbria.
