Before The Hunt 1 Day Mechanical Carved Cuckoo Clock By SCHNEIDER

This traditional Before The Hunt 1 Day Mechanical Carved Cuckoo Clock By SCHNEIDER represents a fine example of a genuine, high quality hand-crafted Black Forest cuckoo clock, produced by clock makers SCHNEIDER from Schonach in the Black Forest region of Germany.

Measuring 48cm in height*, this beautifully hand-carved clock features a stag head carving crowning a traditional hunting scene, represented before the hunt begins. Hunting scenes often feature a hare and a pheasant and 2 rifles hanging from the head of the clock, however this particular version features a hare and a bird on either side of the wooden clock dial. Additional details to complete the hunting scene includes a powder bag at the base of the clock as well as a horn that surrounded the dial. Beautiful oak foliage also adorns the clock, whilst colourful dancers are situated on a balcony above the clock dial, rounding out this fantastic hunting scene.

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. After each cuckoo call, the clock will play a melody, whilst the dancers twirl elegantly on the balcony to the music. This clock needs to be wound once a day.

This beautifully designed clock by SCHNEIDER is a charming timepiece, suitable for those looking for a quality traditional 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.
