Over the past weekend I acquired a collection of 24 rare and antique Black Forest Clocks. The clocks have been in storage for over a decade. I was thrilled to be able to locate so many choice pieces and add them to our collection in a single transaction.
This collection includes many high-quality 8-day shelf cuckoos, several by Johann Baptist Beha.
A 5" C.1880 Hunter cuckoo with huge 8" 5 tune music box. Early cast brass pinned plate movement.
A Black Forest Trumpeter
A unique Black Forest Muscial piece
A GHS Apostle Clock
A GHS Monk Automaton
Many of these clocks are documented in the book Black Forest Clocks by Rick Ortenburger. (see sidebar for a link)
Please stay tuned for detailed posts of these Antique Black Forest Pieces! And check our private museum.
