• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

Hello, can someone refresh my memory regarding who made cuckoo clock mechanisms and incorporated a bird as a separate part of the plate to hang the pivot on the escarpment? I used to know this but can't recall now! Thanks.

Hello, this mechanism has a bird symbol attached to the plate, and was (from memory) a company symbol - but I see it so rarely, I have forgotten. Any help appreciated. Thanks. cuckoo mechanism with bird.jpg

You posted this inquiry earlier in the Wood Movement forum. I have combined the two discussions into the General Clocks Discussion forum, where it properly belongs. It does not, of course, have a wood movement.

Hello together,
according to Schmid "Uhrenlexikon" , MICROLISC (see under Jaegler) or Schneider "Kuckuckuhren"-book the bird as anchor plates (Ankerplaettchen) was used by Fuerderer & Jaegler in Neustadt (Black Forest).

The brass platines most likely have been produced by BURGER in Schonach (Black Forest). BURGER was a very important supplyer for platines, wheels, ect. (brass casted clock parts)
