    Hi, I won this Cuckoo and Quail with a wood plate movement at an auction in Germany recently and would be very grateful to the cuckoo experts on the forum for a possible date (I know dating cuckoo's is not easy!) and maker? No marks anywhere that I can see.
    It looked to be a nice one in the auction photos and when it arrived I was even more happy with it. Everything was there which is always very nice to have. One of the gong hammers is a replacement, but that's it I think.
    Very nice quality wood carving on the case.
    I will take the movement out later for a closer look.
    Thanks guys.

    I'm sorry I can't answer your questions, but it is indeed a very nice looking clock.

    Thanks Tom, I might re-post this in the general forum where it may be seen better by the experts.

    that looks like a wooden plate movement with iron arbors,metall lantern pinions and brass wheels ,in contrast to the movements with wooden bobbin arbors called "holzgespindelt". I´d put Your clock around 1880+-10y. Pics from the sides-with the Little doors opened-would confirm my guess.
