This clock was made in 1863 by Johann Baptist Beha, In Eisenbach, The heart of the black forest. The same year Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg address a few miles from our home. The records show there were only 5 made, and this is the only spring driven 50 hour model. Also this was the earliest one made. the first of its kind. To date its the only Beha #402 quail clock that has been found. So as it is now, Its the only one there is.... This clock features a massive 50 hour wood plated movement, with cuckoo and quail. In the photos you can see the size of the movement in comparison to another common movement from the era.
