A Delightful Chalet Style Cuckoo Clock
This pleasing Battery Cuckoo Clock 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 25cm in height*, this beautiful clock portrays a delightful scene in the bavarian countryside, featuring a chalet house with a unique facade. Out the front of the chalet, a man and a woman from the Black Forest are featured on either side of the house, whilst a tree and a bench seat are also featured. This fascinating scene also includes a wooden clock dial in the centre of the chalet, and hand painted details including red love hearts on the window shutters and colourful traditional Black Forest clothing worn by the couple.
Chalet style cuckoo clocks are the most famous and common type of cuckoo clock, and are often featured in the shape of alpine houses. They usually feature carvings that represent life in the mountain regions of Europe (mainly around Southern Germany, The Black Forest, Switzerland and Austria). Chalet style cuckoo clocks can range from simple arrangements of carved features to very detailed scenes with many moving parts (known as automaton). This clock is sure to spark a sense of joy to whoever looks upon the delightful scene.
The in-built cuckoo of this beautiful clock calls the time each hour, 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 does not come with music.
