Justin showed us a beautiful example of a very early shield clock with animated figure. Here is a modern example, made today with the same tradition of craftsmanship.
This clock is an authentic replica of a Black Forest clock of the early Nineteenth Century. The Hand-painted shield clock features a face whose eyes move with the movement of the pendulum. "The Turk" also laughs, or gasps counting each hour on the hour and once on the half-hour.
This piece is handpainted by the award-winning shield painter Conny Haas. The clock is built by Ingolf Haas who represents the fourth generation of Black Forest clockmakers.
