I inherited this first clock a couple of years ago from my aunt's estate. She was 87 yrs. old when she passed on. I was anxious to get it but disappointed when I realized that my uncle had taken the cuckoo out because it stopped working. (I think he tried to fix it but couldn't. )
When my Mom said I could have it, I knew I had to get it fixed.
She had traveled to Germany with a close friend more than 50 yrs. ago and brought it back.
When I was a small child I remember going for a visit and being intrigued by the little bird. In January I had the clock refurbished, so to speak. Now my grandchildren are enjoying it, especially the 1 year old who stops when he hears it and yells cuckoo, mimicking the bird.
This one is on an arm and has two faces high up an open shelf in our master bathroom.
This one sets in our bedroom sitting room.
This is in an upstairs hallway. I've had it about 30 years and my little bear collection is on it.
