Antique Mantel Clock with Eagle and Chamois Family, ca. 1900
Item e6134

A large Black Forest wooden carved mantel clock with an eagle on top and a chamois defending her child. The clock is embedded in a handcarved wood pile. A masterpiece of Brienz woodcarvings which brightens up any chimney piece. The clockwork is cleaned and overworked by a clockmaker - working order.

Soberly considered mantel clocks are small pendulum clocks with feet. The exposed position on the protruding part of the chimney makes it an exquisite room decoration. In order to create an eye-catcher for the central place in the living area, all the craftsmanship of the wood artist is required. Even though these clocks are not as talked about as the famous Black Forest Cuckoo Clocks, they are a must-have for any great fireplace.
