Up for sale is a (believed) mid-late1800's style Black Forest, carved cuckoo clock (could be early 1900's, not sure). It is in perfect working order, and I am not sure if the bird appears pointed to the left. I would say that you should estimate that the bird will appear in the center position, but perhaps it is pointing some to the left. I only saw it work at the dealer I purchased it from many years ago, where is was fully demonstrated to be working perfectly, and have not used it since. It has NO TOPPER. It has been in storage since 1987. I am not a clock expert, so I am not guaranteeing the time period of this clock exactly, but it is probably late 1800's - early 1900's. Based upon preliminary amateur research, it may even be MID-1800's, so possibly rare. Also, my research showed that very early clocks of his type had birds that would move slightly to the left.  I observed the bird movement and perhaps I'm seeing things, but it may move to the left, you can be the judge. Shipping and insurance to the continental U.S. is $50.00. The dimensions (in U.S. Inches) are:

Height: 13.5 "

Width:  12.5"

Depth:  6"

Pendulum is: 9" for entire length

Pine Cone weights length is: 9"

The clock does have a very old repair on the right hand side (see photos), where it apparently was dropped or fell off the wall. It is in the same condition I purchased it in. It has a mystical, ancient-sounding whistle, and if you look closely at the photos, you will see very clearly the age of the material used to wrap the whistles. The only thing I guarantee is that it is VERY old, and is in working condition. One Ebay member has emailed me that the clock may be from the early 1900's, and while this conflicts with my own opinion, I make no guarantees as to the time period of this clock. 

Shipping and Insurance for this item will be $50 to the lower 48 USA states. All other areas must use Ebay's global shipping (if it qualifies), or must be calculated. Buyer to pay all shipping and insurance costs. Please read my feedback, I am very good at packing items for safety. Thanks for looking.
