Shelf Cuckoo by Johann Baptist Beha

Johann Baptist Beha Shelf Cuckoo ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Johann Baptist Beha Shelf Cuckoo ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

Shelf cuckoos by Johann Baptist Beha are in high demand by a segment of the clock-collecting world. Extraordinary cases, high-quality fusee movements, wonderful sounds, delightful clocks. Here is yours:

Physical: The walnut, burl and ebonized case, which measures 13"w x 20"h x 8.5"d is in excellent physical condition throughout. It has just been carefully and completely cleaned and polished. The bone hands are original. The hand-carved bone numerals were expertly duplicated from the remnants of the prior numerals and represent exceptional craftsmanship. The articulated cuckoo bird is original and comes out of double doors instead of the typical single door. There is a phenomenal label from the English jewelers, Camerer and Cuss on the inside of the backboard.

Mechanical: The eight-day, cable-driven double fusee movement with wood plates is original to the clock. It has just been professionally serviced and is in excellent running order, including the cuckoo. The lead-weighted pendulum is correct and original to the clock. The bellows tops are old replacements (typical). Beha apparently had his own special way that he did some things, including how the ratchet springs on the back plate tapered off. This clock has been looked at by some Beha experts, all of whom have confirmed its authenticity for us... and you. It's the little things that make a BIG difference!

Comments: This is a wonderful clock that really grows on you as you are around it. The wood is exceptional, the overall condition exceptional, and the cuckoo is just plain charming. Give us a call to make it your own... or perhaps a special graduation or wedding gift as June is here!

Gustav Becker Baroque
Grand Sonnerie Vienna Regulator

Gustav Becker Baroque  Grand Sonnerie Vienna Regulator ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Gustav Becker Baroque  Grand Sonnerie Vienna Regulator ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Gustav Becker Baroque  Grand Sonnerie Vienna Regulator ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

Gustav Edward Becker (1819-1885) and his factories were among the best known and most prolific of the Austrian/German clock manufacturing firms. Today, Becker clocks are in high demand by both collectors and those just looking for a decorator piece.

This is a wonderful example in a "Baroque" style case. The Braunau factory where this clock was made was open from 1888-1926, so we know that this clock was made during that period of time, but there are no serial number tables for this factory in the public record. Our best guess on the manufacture date would be in the 1890-1895 period as the Baroque period of the Jugendstill era ended in approximately 1895.

Physical: The walnut case, which has the original finish, measures 16"w x 56"h x 16"d and is in excellent physical condition as you can see in the numerous photos below. The 7" diameter dial has a porcelain outer ring and an etched center as do the weights (center one slightly different) and the pendulum bob. The glass is old, too, though difficult to tell if it is original to the case.

Mechanical: The eight-day movement of the grand sonnerie style was recently professionally cleaned and serviced and is in excellent running order. Please see the linked article. The factory serial number 191697 is stamped on both the front and back plates of the movement.

Comments: Becker clocks have long been in high demand. This one will be no exception. It will be a grand statement in your entry or living room. A simple phone call can start it on its way to you.

View the original Lenzkirch catalogue page ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

It's not often that we find a European clock and have access to the original catalogue in which it was listed. In this case, the catalogues and commentary assembled by the esteemed, now passed, Dana Blackwell illustrate this clock case (with a different dial/weight configuration). Click the catalogue drawing to the left to expand and see the whole page.

Physical: The beautiful burled case has recently been refinished by a top professional and is in excellent physical condition from top to bottom. The case measures 17"w x 48"h x 7"d. The 7" porcelain dial is in excellent original condition. Nice hands, too.

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-only, one-weight movement has been professionally overhauled, plates polished and lacquered. It is in excellent running order, ready for years of great service for you. It is important to point out that many early Lenzkirch clocks did not have a signature on the movement. They are legitimate, original movements, but unsigned. This does not have any impact on their valuation or authenticity.

Comments: Fabulous clock and really priced right. Lots of clock for the money from a well-known maker. Give us a call to get it on its way to you.

Very Large 30-Day Vienna Regulator, c.1890 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

We don't see many wall clocks as large as this, particularly Vienna regulators. This circa 1890 clock is in wonderful physical and mechanical condition condition with the original finish intact.

Physical: The walnut case, which measures 20"w x 78"h x 10"d is in excellent original-finish condition. The dial glass is original; lower replaced at some point in the past.

Please note the detail in the 9" engraved brass dial as well as the fabulous pulley, weight and pendulum bob. There is also lots of carving detail on the case, and a raised, carved backboard. Great orginal finials, too. Lots of detail to appreciate here!

Mechanical: The 30-day movement has just been professionally overhauled, the plates polished and lacquered. It is in excellent mechanical condition, ready for years of great service for you.

Comments: Lotta clock... that you only have to wind once a month!

Large Altdeutsch One-Weight Vienna Regulator
Large Altdeutch-Era Single-Weight Vienna Regulator - Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

When we first saw this clock the reaction was "Wow!" It is an extraordinarily beautiful and quite stately clock that you should seriously consider for your home or office.

Physical: The walnut/burl/ebony case, typical of the Altdeutsch era (1870-1895) is in excellent physical condition. The case measures a whopping 50"h x 15"w x 7"d. The 7" diameter porcelain dial is in excellent condition as are the highly decorative finials.

Mechanical: The very high quality unsigned, serial-numbered eight-day, time-only movement was professionally overhauled in 2009 and is in excellent running order.

Comments: We have quite a few photos of this beauty. Take a close look for yourself and then pick up the phone and make it your own.
