[American Cuckoo] Very Rare American Cuckoo Clock Company, Indian Shooting The Buffalo Philadelphia c.1890

A VERY unusual and rare cuckoo clock. There is an eagle at the top clutching an American flag with carved stars. Near the bottom a Native American Indian aims a rifle (oddly not a bow and arrow) at a buffalo surrounded by leaves and grapes. The original hands and center nut are made out of carved bone. There is an interesting hand typed paper notation on old cardstock that states that the pendulum is actually a replacement carved by same company at the time, and that this specific clock was originally carved by the Pesident's father. The partial rear label includes instructions for use. This is a one day clock in excellent running order having been cleaned and rebushed in January of 2014. The clock strikes on the hour and on the half hour with a fantastic sounding cuckoo call accompanied by a coiled gong. It is says here that this clock may be one of only two possibly known to exist. The last one was apparently sold in 2002.

For documentation purposes. This clock is not for sale at this time.

Vintage Quarter Striking Cuckoo & Quail Clock by Heco

The quail strikes every 15 minutes on this and then the cuckoo calls out the hour on this colorful German cuckoo clock. This one is unique because it has "old world" works in a more modern style clock. It was manufactured by the Heco Clock Company, which is short for Henry Coehler & Co. This clock was most likely manufactured in the late 1960's in Germany. The movement is an unusual large, quality brass movement made just as they were in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Both birds are fully animated, moving their wings and beak as the clock strikes. Please see the pics and video link below.
