Seller: theglorybox (376) 100%, Location: Dunedin, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 303273837151 This is a beautiful Cuckoo style novelty clock with rolling eyes and moving beak. It is now in excess of 100 yrs old and is nicely consistent to dating with Art Nouveau decorations on wood panels. The diamond mark shown in photos on the left hand corner of the eight day clock movement identifies it as made by the Meiji company around C1908. I have not had the clock working as I have no keys (there are two key holes on clock face) but using the pendulum to make it move brings it into action. I understand the owl hoots I cannot guarantee every thing is in tact with the clock mechanisms but have endeavoured to show in the photos. If any doubt have a look at the photos closely and any questions are most welcome. This wall clock measures 40cm by 30cm so is quite a sizeable piece and looks wonderful on the wall. It has a Jewellers Sticker on back depicting the original place of purchase in Christchurch. A copy of this clock is held in our National Clock Museum but I have not see another in this condition. I am no expert on these items sonwill present it for your own judgement. I love it because it is quirky and a genuine vintage item. A rare and wonderful piece. Free worldwide shipping is offered on this item. Thank you for looking. Condition: This wonderful wooden cased antique Japanese clock is being sold as is. Casing is in good order except for small fraction missing of the top left head crest on left corner and corner crack other side. The clock itself is still in moving order but some of the wires need reconnected. It needs a clean inside and a general tidy up. Some varnish shellac worn on outside., Region of Origin: Nagoya Japan, Product: Antique Meiji Clock, Age: 1900-1940, Primary Material: Wood/ Woodenware, Sub-Type: Novelty, Original/Repro: Antique Original
