This clock is a traditional Black Forest Wallclock. Known locally as Lackschilduhren this literally translated means, lead painted shield. This type of clock was one of the original styles designed by the Black Forest Clockmakers. Much later, out of these designs came the carved Cuckoo clocks that we now associate with this area.

This model is a true original replica of one of the first Cuckoo clock wall clocks ever designed. This particular clock shows the symbols of the four seasons in each corner of the dial arranged clockwise. These clocks are limited to an edition of just 100 pieces making this very collectable.

It has an antique finish with Roman Numeral chapter ring and hand painted designs in the corners and break arch of the dial. 8 day weight driven movement. Brass weights with matching pendulum.

Please note. This clock is made to order and the delivery may be up to 6 weeks.
