IT HAS BEEN REPAIRED OVER THE YEARS AND COULD USE A GOOD RE-STAINING, WHICH WOULD HIDE MUCH OF THE REPAIRS, BUT, WE WILL LEAVE THAT UP TO THE NEW OWNERS DISCRETION. IT CUCKOO'S "RINGS" ON THE HALF HOUR AND THE APPROPRIATE TIMES ON THE HOUR. IN ALL THE YEARS WE HAVE OWNED CUCKOO CLOCKS, WE HAVE NEVER HAD ONE THAT CUCKOOS "AND" RINGS ! IT WAS MISSING THE PART THAT THE HAMMER HITS BUT I HAD A FEW SPARES AND AFTER JUDGING WHICH SIZE WAS BEST AND A FEW MINOR ADJUSTMENTS, IT WORKS JUST FINE ! THE BELLOWS HAD BEEN RECENTLY REPLACED OR AT LEAST THERE WAS LITTLE IF ANY USE BY THEM FROM THAT TIME AS THEY LOOK NEARLY NEW (and apparently installed backwards?). IT HAD A HANDWRITTEN NOTE IN THE BOX IN WHICH IN CAME IN THAT STATED IT WAS REPAIRED IN THE 1960's BUT WE CANNOT VERIFY THAT. THE BONE HANDS OF THE CLOCK MAY HAVE BEEN REPLACED. IT HAS "NO" MAKERS MARK ON IT WHATSOEVER, JUST TWO (2) STRIPS OF AN OLD GERMAN PAPER THAT WAS USED AS SEAMS INSIDE AND WE DO NOT READ GERMAN BUT WE CAN MAKE OUT THE YEARS 1918, 1919 AND 1920. THE BIRD INSIDE IS UNIQUE IN THE IT IS HINGED AT THE WINGS AND THE BEAK. IT IS MISSING EITHER TWO (2) EGGS OR PEEPS IN THE NEST SO WE USED A WOODEN EGG IN SOME OF THE PICTURES. IT MEASURES 27" LONG OVERALL AND 18 1/2" WIDE AND 9 1/2" DEEP. IT FEATURES A 5 3/4" CLOCK FACE. Condition: Used, Condition: A LARGE BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF ARTWORK THAT MAKES THE MOST LOVELY SOUNDS-CUCKOOS & RINGS, Country/Region of Manufacture: Germany, Brand: BLACK FOREST, Clock Type: TAILROAD CUCKOO CLOCK, Style: QUAIL, Year: c1920
