My mother bought this clock for my grandparents when she started working as a teenager. That was close to 50 years ago (sorry mum!). When I got it, it hadn't worked for a long time but we found a cuckoo clock specialist that gave us some wonderful information about the clock and also changed the whole workings to get it going for us. It is a genuine Black Forest Cuckoo clock made from Linden wood. I remember my grandfather pulling up the weights to 'wind' it up and waiting for the cuckoo to pop out on the hour/half hour.
When I wake up in the night it is quite handy to listen for the cuckoos to work out the time.
I am so lucky to have this treasure!
ps. I have two things to cross off the list for this week! Happy dancing!! I will post photos later in the week
