Black Forest Trumpeter Clock by Emilian Werhle, Fürtwangen.


1 in stock



A most strikingly handsome, and extremely rare piece, by the legendary Trumpeter & Flute clock maker, Emilian Wehrle who worked in his small factory in Fürtwangen, Schwarzwald in the 19th century.
This piece, c1870 has had but one former keeper, having come out of a large house in County Clare, Ireland some 20 years ago.
The bellows have been recovered and the organ put back into playing order. While the massive, high quality 8 day 2 tune x 5 horn clock mechanism was out, it was carefully cleaned and lubricated. At this time it was noted just how crisp and tight all linkages were, with no sign’s of wear to the mech, practically pristine.
The case is walnut, with no losses or damage, even the gothic pierced fretwork doors on either side are intact and retain their original fabric backing
A rare opportunity to add a most desirable clock to your collection, not only has it had an easy life, but just happens to be great fun.
Generally these pieces just do not surface on the open market.
This example being out of Mark’s personal collection
