A Traditional Cuckoo Clock Design By TRENKLE
Nothing speaks traditional charm quite like this particular Cuckoo Clock, which is a genuine, high quality hand-carved Black Forest cuckoo clock, produced by artisan clock makers TRENKLE from Simonswald in the Black Forest region of Germany.
Measuring 35cm* in height, this beautiful hand-carved clock celebrates the festivity of the Black Forest where it was carved. All of the features are very detailed with features including a bird carving along with an arrangement of leaf foliage adorning the clock’s body, a design commonly featured on many of the early cuckoo clocks and still considered one of the most popular styles of cuckoo clock carvings today. The ornamental leaves around the front of the clock are characteristic of the traditionally carved cuckoo clocks, with this particular clock also featuring a bird at the crown of the clock above the wooden clock dial. The design of a frame of leaves may also be crowned with a carved deer head, however this particular clock instead features a bird, a very famous and traditional element for cuckoo clocks. The clock features a simple cuckoo bird, with the overall clock enhanced by a timber leaf pendulum and weights. Rounding out the design of the clock are hand painted dancers on a balcony above the clock dial who twirl elegantly to a different song every hour.
The in-built cuckoo of this beautiful clock calls the time each hour through a door that opens, with a permanent automatic night-time shut-off that is controlled by a light sensor. When the room is dark enough, the cuckoo will no longer sound allowing you a sound sleep, before recommencing as the room lights up again the next morning. There is also a manual override to silence the cuckoo altogether should that be preferred.
This cuckoo clock comes with an option of 12 different melodies that rotate each hour including:
- Music Box Dancer
- Muss I Denn Zum (Wooden Heart)
- Lara's Theme - Dr Zhivago
- Mühle im Schwarzwald (Black Forest Mill)
- Ich weiss nicht, was soll es bedeuten (The Lorelei)
- Oh My Papa
- Fröhlicher Wanderer (Happy Wanderer)
- Que Sera
- Für Elise (Pour Elise)
This beautifully designed clock by TRENKLE is a charming timepiece, suitable for those looking for a quality traditional battery cuckoo clock using carving methods that have been practised for hundreds of years.
