This cuckoo clock was an early rare example of cuckoo clock work done by the Schlenker & Kienzle clock company.

Schlenker & Kienzle company history:

Jakob Kienzle (1859 – 1935) was the founder of a major German clock producing factory in the town of Schwenningen, Württemberg.

Kienzle became a foster-son of Friedrich Mauthe after his father’s early death and started to work in the Mauthe clock factory at the age of fourteen.
After an apprenticeship in a colonial goods business in Triberg, Kienzle worked with Johannes Schlenker, a well known master clockmaker, married
his daughter in 1883 and took over the clock making facility together with his brother-in-law, Karl-Johannes Schlenker.
The company was named Schlenker-Kienzle and started to industrialize
clock production.

By 1887, the company opened a factory branch in Komotau, Bohemia (then Austria, today Czech Republic).
Karl-Johannes Schlenker left the company in 1898, thus leaving Kienzle as the sole owner. Kienzle had by then started with “American style” clock mass-production, producing over 500,000 clocks a year.
