Rare Emilian Wehrle Rooster Clock with Exposed Rooster

This is one of two Rooster clocks in our collection. Although both were made by Emilian Wehrle at the end of the 19th century, this example varies from the other example in our collection. This example has the rooster exposed, perched on the top of the clock. At the top of the hour the rooster comes to life as the movement reproduces the roosters crow. To get a better look at the rooster clock please visit our website Our new book, Rare and Unusual Black Forest Clocks, also goes into detail on these rooster clocks giving information on the two main makers of Black Forest rooster clocks. The book also has five different examples shown in full color.
