Antique German or Germany Shelf Novelty Blinking Eye Clock
C.1910, German, Moving Eye Minstrel. (a change of pace for this time in the auction). They made these clocks with frogs and other performers, however this particular one is a black minstrel, complete with his fiddle, and booze bottle in his right hand. But the best part is the animation of the eyes, which move back and forth to the ticking of the clock, and he really appears to be looking you over. There is a very old repair to his had which you only see on looking from the rear, and the paper dial has been replaced; he is otherwise in excellent condition, 1-day movement running and eyes moving well. Height 9 inches
