Seller: ellemelody (738) 100%, Location: Leeds, Ships to: GB, Item: 173223604363 Rare Robert Venturi Alessi 1988 Cuckoo clock Kuckucksuhr Designer / world’s most famous architect Venturi You are viewing one of the rarest Cuckoo Clocks, created for Alessi by one of the world’s most leading architects / designer Robert Venturi This Venturi Cuckoo clock is probably the best example anyone could hope to achieve (other than having a brand new boxed away - never used one) & most will struggle to find one better. It’s not new, but from viewing my photo’s, its condition shows it’s spent most of its life boxed away. If you've ever viewed one of these before (which I have), you can tell that this really is superior & has only had very minimal use - this you can tell by the Acorns, body & back + the interior working - as all are A***** condition. Working condition; 100% full working order – it’s a 24hr clock & the cuckoo sounds as & when it should on the half & hour (also to mention the cuckoo is in superb condition). Box; Complete with its original box (for a collector an original box adds to its value). Box exterior has its original label (see photo) but to mention the box has a bit of wear & & tear - as can be seen in the photos. Interior of clock; Is in superb condition (looks as good as the day it was made) & the back wood / door plate/ panel also bears the original Venturi / Alessi label. Exterior of clock: A* Fantastic condition (most collectors will struggle to find a better example & could only achieve this by finding a never used boxed away item). Any wear or damage, I would describe as: The chain: in some places lost some gilt/ darkened. However, the Acorns are in fantastic / very best condition, if you’ve ever seen a used Venturi cuckoo clock - often the Acorns discolour (yellow) with major paint flecks missing, but these acorns are very white with no flecks (see photos).Paintwork / roof / sides are superb, hardly any blemishes, but should mention as wood is natural – there is a slight paint fleck on paintwork. Hopefully any viewer can zoom in the photos to get closer detailed views (if not I can always send the photos individually if required). We love this clock & intended to keep it. But due to moving home quite frequently, it seems to spend most of its time boxed away. Yet again, we’ve just moved & it’s still in its box, so perhaps there’s someone out there who will appreciate it better. Postal note; As quite heavy & a high end art object, the post price reflects weight & insurance (I send only fully tracked). Or it can be collected in person. Post is within UK; however, I might post overseas – but only via a fully tracked and insured method. Happy bidding Condition: Used, Age: Late 20th Century (1970-1999), Brand: Venturi Alessi Sottsass Starck, Features: Designer Cuckoo clock
