The cucokoo clock was purchase when my grandmother was in Germany from 1894-1896. I'm open to finding out whatever information is available. It needs another ivory minute hand and that might be hard to find. Also, I have no idea on value. I haven't seen others like it.

    What are the measurements? Dave
  2. Dizzydave Dizzydave, 4 years ago
    Also open the back and see if there is a name on the back of clock works, sometimes its stamped. Thanks, Dave
  3. Jackie Jackie, 4 years ago
    Dave, I never thought to see what might be stamped on the works--Thank you.
    I can't check it right now because everything is in storage. But, I believe it fit in a 42-inch box. I took all my pictures the first of this year when everything was still in their original positions.

    I had a similar clock sell at auction last year for $375, it was in 100% working condition.

    Beautiful clock! Try http://www.antiqueclockprices.com Good luck!
  6. Tamia Tamia, 4 years ago
    Oh, btw...it looks like a Blackforest clock which were mostly made in Germany.

    Blackforest yep Thats what I say too looks in great cond does it worg still.Take pic with bird out If bird.
  8. Dizzydave Dizzydave, 4 years ago
    No doubt Blackforest, but attach a maker to that and it can be worth a lot more. I haven't heard back if she found a name stamped on the back of works. Dave
  9. Jackie Jackie, 4 years ago
    Tamia, thank you for your kind words, and it did come from Germany.

    Dizzydave and Toyman, the clock works fine. I need to find an ivory minute hand. At this time, I can't look for a stamp or take a picture with the bird out because the clock is in storage. It might take me a while. You've given some good pointers and a good start for researching. Thank you.

    Yardsaledave, the clock that was sold at auction, do you know anything else about it--size, manufacture, date?
  12. Jackie Jackie, 4 years ago
    Does anyone know where I can find an ivory minute hand?
  13. PEEKABOO, 4 years ago
    THEY SELL IVORY PIANO KEYS ON EBAY, MAYBE PICK SOME UP AND HAVE IT MADE BY CLOCK SMITH
  14. Toyman Toyman, 4 years ago
    Look on ebay for a clock on ebay with similar hand that you need .A parts clock .Then just re sell parts clock after you get what you need.
  15. Jackie Jackie, 4 years ago
    Peekaboo and Toyman, your suggestions are certainly appreciated. Both are ways I'd never thought about. Thanks.
