My Black forest clock collection: Proudly featured in Clocks Magazine, The whole issue was dedicated, front and back covers, and full center-spread, :) Pretty cool. Turned out great I thought.
We have a great group page on FACEBOOK...
After a somewhat dedicated recent thread, another collector shared a clock they were seeking information about. Seeming to find very little from the history books about Alexander Fleig, I thought I might dedicate a thread.
Share away, Anyone out there have any more information about the...
I got this lovely tall case in a trade years ago, I never looked much into it. Can anyone help shed some light on it?
I liked it because I thought it was pretty early, and the case style I thought was a nice one.
Interested to know more. Many thanks.
Ok fellas, Its not often I am stumped. Not often at all.... In all my years of pretty serious exploring, I have never seen a cuckoo movement with a hair spring escapement. On first look, I dismissed it as retrofit, but on closer inspection, I think its legit!! In 20+ years of...
A dear find from a dear friend, He has this antique photo of his mother in the old days. In the background is a very curious clock. I told him I know JUST the guys to ID it. :)
Any information would be greatly appreciated. he has made a mission of finding one. :)

A stunning Gothic architectural Beha wall clock, featuring a massive double fusee 8 day movement in wood plates. Seen here in amazing condition and with a loving touch its running like the day it was made. Ca 1870-ish, with a nice big plump bird. :)
Coolest clock weights I ever saw. I just unwrapped these and they were a total surprise. These I would consider trench art.
At first I thought they were just a delightfully unusual set of clock weights, but exploring a little I realized they are (around) WW1 and measure 38mm, German...
A magnificent carved Black forest table cuckoo clock. PHS (Phillip Haas & Sohne), St Georgen, ..Ca 1870. Large single fusee 8 day brass movement with a very unusual theme carved from a solid block of walnut.. Dueling hares.
This is an earlier tin plate painted wall cuckoo from around 1870. This one is not a Beha. I shared another similar that is made by the Johann Baptist Beha firm, this one is made by a pretty fierce competitor, The GHS firm. Gordian Hettich & Sohne. (Furtwangen) Equal in all areas, but for...
