Authentic Mechanical Carved Cuckoo Clock From The Black Forest
This delightful 5 Leaf with Blue & White Flowers 1 Day Mechanical Carved Cuckoo Clock By TRENKLE which is a genuine, high quality hand-crafted Black Forest cuckoo clock, produced by artisan clock makers TRENKLE from Simonswald in the Black Forest region of Germany.
Measuring 20cm in height*, this adorable clock features a bird carving along with an arrangement of leaves adorning the clock’s body, a design commonly featured on many of the early cuckoo clocks and still make up one of the most popular styles of cuckoo clock carving today. The ornamental leaves around the front of the clock are characteristic of the traditionally carved cuckoo clocks, with this particular clock having the added detail of both blue and white flowers hand-painted in the centre of each leaf as well as on the pendulum. 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 in-built cuckoo of this beautiful clock calls the time each hour and once at half past, with a manual shut-off mode that is enabled by lifting and pulling a lever. There is no music with this clock and it needs to be wound once a day.
This beautifully designed clock by TRENKLE is a charming timepiece, suitable for those looking for a quality traditional wind up cuckoo clock using carving methods that have been practised for hundreds of years.
Benefits of a Mechanical Cuckoo Clock
Black Forest mechanical cuckoo clocks are weight driven and are available in two different movements:
- 1 Day Movement - you wind the clock by pulling the chain and winding the weights once a day
- 8 Day Movement - you wind the clock by pulling the chain and winding the weights once a week
Each mechanical cuckoo clock will have either two or three weights; two weights for cuckoo only and three weights for cuckoo and music. One weight runs the clock movement and hands that show the time and the second weight drives the cuckoo calling mechanism. The cuckoo sound is produced using bellows that push air through two whistles creating the 'cook' and 'coo' sounds respectively. If you choose to also have music with your mechanical cuckoo clock, the third weight drives a traditional mechanical music box movement with a pinned cylinder that plucks notes on a 'comb' to produce a melody.
