Antique American Clocks January 2022
Anton Schneider Söhne “Regal Hunter cuckoo clock”, contemporary. This clock currently retails for $5247 and you can read the description here. It is 44 inches tall and is all wood – from the antlers to the clock hands and numerals. The movement is 8-days with a cuckoo counting the hours and music that plays while the dancers at the top dance and go round. It plays two songs, The Happy Wanderer and Edelweiss. There is a lever on the side that allows you to silence it. A video on the link above lets you see and hear it play. I believe this one is at least 10-20 years or older; my consignor thinks its from 1945. I see no damage or missing parts; it is running and playing as expected. I found one sales record on LiveAuctioneers from 2014 for $550. $500-$5000.
