A larger size cuckoo clock which is 75 plus years old - it's tag reads; "Schwarzwald Industrie Ausstellung Frieburg I. Br. Bursengang Jnn. FR. Grimm"

Would like any details on this maker.

Ontime, your cuckoo propably was made before 1910, because the "Schwarzwald Industrie-Ausstellung GmbH." is mentioned in 1907. This company was a retailer, not a facturer.

By the way: We love pics...

Well, the name of the town is Freiburg, and the 'Bursengang' is a shopping arcade in the centre of Freiburg. The most famous Grimms from that area are of course the fairytale-writing Grimm brothers. I am sorry I can't help with a connection between 'Grimm' and clocks but I'm almost sure it must be a retailer.

The industrial exhibition I think has disappeared from the calendar.
