More Antique Black Forest Clocks

Before the traditional hunting model cuckoo, there was the Bahnhäusle. Before the Bahnhäusle, and after the Shield cuckoo, there was the Rahmenuhr...

Here is a great example from c.1880 with a gold-embossed face. This style might be borrowed from the Morbiers in France and Belgium(?)

This Rahmenuhr, or frame clock has an excellently preserved movement with wooden plates. (See the rabbit silhouette at the top?)


  1. - NCI fan just showed us a pic of his Rahmenuhr in response to our post. Show us yours!
