Seller: v005pm (973) 100%, Location: Crawley, West Sussex, Ships to: GB, Item: 142662292015 Here we have a very large antique cuckoo clock by Gordian Hettich Sohne from C1908ish. 8 days duration with Fusee control system. The clock has been in my family for years for as long as I can remember. As I have finally decided to sell it I have performed a full service on it as it had not been used in many years. I seem to remember it was put away because it had stopped running correctly. So I have given it a new lease of life, which will last for many generations to come.The clock has been fully serviced last month. This means the clock has been fully stripped down to each wheel and cog, cleaned, re-bushed where necessary, lubricated and tested. See photo during movement service. The bellow tops have just had their leather replaced with extra thin specialist leather in keeping with the original bellows antique design. New marble paper has been replaced on the bellow tops matching the still original marble paper on the bellows flutes. The movement is all clean and shinny ready for several generations to come. Keeping good time. Please study the photos carefully to see the overall condition. Clock has the original bone carved hands. The minute hand has been repaired with a metal backing to aid strength. There is a line on the crest which looks like the way the clock was originally carved when making the crest. Perhaps two sections when made? Cuckoo seems to be the original with animated wings and beak. Looks as if the number nine numerial is a replacement, possibly number ten also. I estimate the clock is from around 1900-1910ish. There is a label on the back cover which you should be able to read in the photo. This label has a reference to 1908. Cuckoos and strikes a gong calling the hours and marking the half hours. The clock is 53cm high and sits on a matching shelf 40cm wide, 23cm high and 23cm deep. So when displayed on the wall with the shelf from the tip of the crest to bottom of the shelf is approx 76cm. Personal collection from my home in Crawley Sussex is welcome if you don't want it posted. Payment via Pay Pal, Cash on personal collection, Bank Transfer or Cheque. Delivery will be via UPS and I may use two parcels to separate the crest and shelf to aid safe packing. If you are based in non UK mainland I may have to charge a surcharge as the courier will charge extra to deliver to your hard to reach area. Check with me if a concern.
