A Clock With A Story To Tell

Looking for a cuckoo clock that offers a background story to tell? Why not consider this charming 1 Day Mechanical Carved Cuckoo Clock designed by world renowned clock makers HÖNES from the Black Forest in Germany, where the company was established in 1950. 

Measuring 58cm in height*,  this cuckoo clock has been designed from the Fox & Grapes story as detailed below:

The story begins with a raven who is sitting on a branch eating a bunch of grapes, whilst a cunning fox lurks below, wanting the grapes for himself. In a plot to steal the grapes from the Raven, the fox devises a clever plan. He speaks to the raven “Oh, how beautiful you are! Tell me, is your voice equally that?”. With great pride the raven lets out the most stunning call that echoes throughout the woodlands, only to have the bunch of grapes fall from the branch which she is perched upon, directly into the open jaws of the clever fox.

This impressive hand-carved clock features deep and detailed carvings in the solid wood, including delicate motifs and foliage adorning the exterior of the design that frame the delightful clock perfectly. The detailed carvings include a raven at the crown, a cunning fox at the base of the clock below the clock dial, whilst nestled in amongst the leaf foliage around the face of the house are bunches of grapes placed at different positions. This clock provides an alternative to the common cuckoo clock carved design of the 5 leaf & bird models - one of the most popular styles of cuckoo clock carvings today.

The clock also features a wooden clock dial in the centre of the piece, and a timber pendulum that hangs below the clock itself, alongside the weights. This particular clock runs on an 8 day mechanism, and therefore needs to be wound once a week simply by pulling the weights. The in-built cuckoo of this clock calls the time each hour and once at half past, with a manual night shut off function should that be preferred.

This beautifully designed clock by HÖNES is a charming timepiece, suitable for those looking for a quality traditional cuckoo clock that has been produced with the same 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.
