Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The all original wooden framed movement has a combination of striking from the cuckoo, the quail and the coiled gong affixed to the back. The bellows are original but recovered in leather. The cuckoo and quail are original and have not been repainted.
The well-carved pendulum is partially hidden behind the fretted base, and the clock benefits form 3 matching weights.
Information from Willhelm Schneider, author of Beha Uhren declares that the finely fretted bone hands now in situ are not original, as bone hands were not made until later.
