American Cuckoo Clock Co. three-weight cuckoo, ca. 1910. The ACCC was in business from 1900 to 1955; they imported cuckoo movements from Germany and made their own cases.  This clock is 22 inches long with good walnut oakleaf carvings throughout.  The dial numbers are bone/ivory and the hands plastic replacements. The one-day time, strike, and cuckoo movement is brass and unsigned; there are two cuckoo birds, with the left bird appearing and calling on the quarter-hours (once, twice, thrice, and four times) and the bird on the right appearing only on the hour after the left bird has sung.  It counts the hours while the gong strikes the hours – a busy event.  The left bird’s call is interesting, a “whoo who-who” for each quarter hour.  There are three bellows inside.  The clock is running, striking and the birds are calling.  This clock will be of interest to your grandkids.  $250–$500.
