Cuckoo Clocks For Sale on 1stDibs

An assortment of cuckoo clocks is available at 1stDibs. Each of these unique cuckoo clocks was constructed with extraordinary care, often using wood, oak and brass. Cuckoo clocks have been produced for many years, with earlier versions available from the 19th Century and newer variations made as recently as the 20th Century. Cuckoo clocks are generally popular furniture pieces, but Victorian and Mid-Century Modern styles are often sought at 1stDibs. Many cuckoo clocks are appealing in their simplicity, but Black Forest and Johann Baptiste Beha produced popular cuckoo clocks that are worth a look.

How Much are Cuckoo Clocks?

Prices for cuckoo clocks can differ depending upon size, time period and other attributes — at 1stDibs, cuckoo clocks begin at $400 and can go as high as $33,000, while the average can fetch as much as $3,504.

Finding the Right Clocks for You

A sophisticated clock design, whether it’s a wall clock, desk clock, mantel clock or other variation, is a decorative object to be admired in your home as much as it is a necessary functional element. This is part of the reason clocks make such superb collectibles. Given the versatility of these treasured fixtures — they’ve long been made in a range of shapes, sizes and styles — a clock can prove integral to your own particular interior decor.

Antique and vintage clocks can whisk us back to the 18th and 19th centuries. When most people think of antique clocks, they imagine an Art Deco Bakelite tabletop or wall clock, named for the revolutionary synthetic plastic, Bakelite, of which they’re made, or a stately antique grandfather clock. But the art of clock-making goes way back, transcending continents and encompassing an entire range of design styles and technologies. In short, there are many kinds of clocks depending on your needs.

A variety of wall clocks can be found on 1stDibs. A large antique hand-carved walnut wall clock is best suited to a big room and a flat background given what will likely be outwardly sculptural features, while Georgian grandfather clocks, or longcase clocks, will help welcome rainswept guests into your entryway or foyer. An interactive cuckoo clock, large or small, is guaranteed to bring outsize personality to your living room or dining room. For conversation pieces of a similar breed, mid-century modern enthusiasts go for the curious Ball clock, the first of more than 150 clock models conceived in the studio of legendary architect and designer George Nelson

Minimalist contemporary clocks and books pair nicely on a shelf, but an eye-catching vintage mantel clock can add balance to your home library while drawing attention to your art and design books and other decorative objects. Ormolu clocks dating from the Louis XVI period, designed in the neoclassical style, are often profusely ornate, featuring architectural flourishes and rich naturalistic details. Rococo-style mantel clocks of Meissen porcelain or porcelain originating from manufacturers in cities such as Limoges, France, during the 18th and 19th centuries, exude an air of imperial elegance on your shelves or side tables and can help give your desk a 19th-century upgrade.

On 1stDibs, find a range of extraordinary antique, new and vintage clocks today.

Questions About Cuckoo Clocks
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Franz Anton Ketterer is believed to be the German clockmaker who invented the cuckoo clock, and he is also one of the founding fathers of the Black Forest clockmaking. Today there are many cuckoo clocks, but to be deemed an authentic Black Forest cuckoo is an honor that is bestowed to only those clocks where every essential part is handmade exclusively in the Black Forest region of Germany. Shop a collection of cuckoo clocks from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
