A fine “model 510” Black Forest shelf cuckoo clock, made by Johann Baptiste Beha, Germany, for Camerer, Kuss & Co. , dating from the 1880s.
The architectural walnut case has a repeating carved fleur de lys trim above the gable, and well carved Gothic arches and a frieze of scrolling leaves around the base.
The wood plated 8-day fusee striking movement has the original leather-covered bellows. The movement cuckoos on the hour and the passing of the half hour, the hour being accompanied by a gong strike.
The wooden dial has applied Roman numerals, and original matching pierced bone hands, which are very intricately carved.
