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.
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.
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)
