The clock industry has seen many ups, and down turns in market value, however one thing is certain in the purchase of a fine or primitive timepiece, there are fewer and fewer examples, as many have been simply discarded due to their no longer functioning, or loss from damage. As the markets continue to rise, the value of antiques will also continue to rise. Add to that, the fact that some pieces that were not as valuable at one time, are now becoming more desirable to collectors. Fine quality pieces in excellent condition will always fetch a higher price. There is always going to be that sale, weather it is an estate sale, yard sale, or auction, bringing forth some diamond in the rough from a family heirloom that speaks to you. It may be a painted box, or piece of jewelry, or even a fancy piece of furniture. Knowing what to look for is just part of the challenge, being in the right place at just the right time and acting (making the purchase)is key to success. Waiting five seconds, and watching another interested buyer snatch it up before you, is painful. This doesn't mean you should buy everything you see. Know what your limits are!. Know if the piece is for you, or something you wish to resell for profit. Have a good idea what you need to get for the item, or have an experienced collector (someone you can trust!!!) help give their opinion. The internet is another good source to get information. The treasures are out there and if you are not there, your chances are 0. Anyway, HAPPY HUNTING! AND GOOD LUCK!

BLACK FOREST AUTOMATION CLOCK (GERMAN C 1840 )

THIS RARE AUTOMATION CLOCK  WAS MADE IN THE EARLY PART OF THE 1800'S.  IT IS AN IMPORTANT EXAMPLE, AND DISPLAYS A PORTRAYAL OF HOW THIS WORK WAS PERFORMED IN THE TIME THIS CLOCK WAS CREATED. THE PRIMITIVE METHODS USED IN SHOE MAKING IS EXECUTED WITH GREAT DETAIL THROUGHOUT THIS CLOCK. I HAVE SEEN ONE OTHER SIMILAR CLOCK WHICH HAS A SINGLE WOOD FIGURE CALLED THE KNIFE GRINDER, WITH THE MAN WORKING ON A TURNING WHEEL. HOWEVER THE TWO COBBLERS ARE A MORE DESIRABLE SUBJECT MATTER AND BECAUSE THERE ARE TWO WOOD CARVED FIGURES, PUTS THIS CLOCK AT THE TOP OF ANY SERIOUS COLLECTORS LIST. 

THE MOTION OF THE CLOCK IS AS FOLLOWS:

AS THE CLOCK STRIKES THE HOUR, BOTH COBBLERS BEGIN THEIR WORK, ONE AT LEFT HAMMERS ON THE SOLE OF A SHOE, WITH PERFECT TIMING THE SOUND OF THE HAMMER MAKING CONTACT WITH THE STONE CREATES A REALISTIC SOUND YOU WOULD HAVE TO HEAR TO BELIEVE. THE OTHER COBBLER AT RIGHT POLISHES ON THE LEATHER OF A SHOE HE HAS PLACED IN HIS LAP. BOTH WORK FOR ABOUT 13 SECONDS. THEN THE BOTH LOOK UP AND START THEIR CONVERSATION. THEIR MOUTHS BOTH OPEN AND CLOSE ADDING TO THE DIFFICULTY  OF THE CRAFTSMANSHIP IN BUILDING THIS FINE WORKING, EXAMPLE OF A PRIMITIVE CLOCK FROM THE EARLY 1800'S
