This is the finest two bird cuckoo quail carved clock I have ever offered for sale. Very good original condition. Movement overhauled and running and striking properly. If your not familiar, the one bird (quail) tells the quarter hour and the other bird (cuckoo) strikes on the hour. Each bird has a different voice so you can tell them apart. Concerning the carving (usually called black forest carving), the entire front carving including the fox, grapes, leaves, etc is carved from one piece of wood. Quite a intricate and time consuming endeavor. Late 19th or early 20th century. Measures approximately 27 x 21 x 9 inches.
