Details: Cuckoo Clock Mfg Co LINDEN 8-DAY CLOCK BLACK FOREST STYLE RINGING WALL CLOCK c1975 Collectible German Mechanical Cuckoo Style Clock
Maker: Cuckoo Clock Mfg. Co./Linden
History of Maker: Sometime shortly before the outbreak of World War II, a pair of Jewish immigrants in New York City founded the Cuckoo Clock Manufacturing Company. Realizing that it was significantly more cost effective to import Black Forest clocks directly from Germany, the company did little to no manufacturing itself, instead marketing clocks from companies including Kammerer and Herr. Later the company changed its name to Linden Clock Manufacturing Company. After undergoing several ownership and name changes in the 1980s, the company ultimately came to be owned by Alliance Time which appears to have discontinued the Linden line.
