Paying Homage To Artisans From A Time Long Ago

This lovely Cuckoo Clock represents 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 32cm in height*, this beautiful clock portrays a delightful scene in the bavarian countryside, featuring a chalet house with a unique facade consisting of both brick and wood. Out the front of the chalet includes many features hand crafted, including a lady and a water wheel, as well as a couple of pine trees. One unique feature of this clock is a clock peddler who features on the right hand side of the clock. The story of the clock peddler dates back hundreds of years where the artisans would spend long winters crafting cuckoo clocks, then travel far and wide in the spring to sell their unique creations. Today the clock peddler is celebrated as a prominent symbol of the successes that the cuckoo clock industry has seen throughout the years, and are often symbolised in many cuckoo clock designs, paying homage to artisans from a time long since past.

This fascinating scene also includes a wooden clock dial in the centre of the chalet, and hand painted details including red window shutters and flowers underneath the windowsills. The roof is made from wooden shingles.

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.

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 comes with music.

Benefits of a Quartz Battery Operated Cuckoo Clock

Quartz cuckoo clocks operate differently to mechanical cuckoo clocks. Quartz simply means the clock movement is battery operated. One benefit of a quartz operated cuckoo clock is that they are easier to manage and more hands off than a traditional mechanical cuckoo clock, as they do not require to be wound, and often feature ornamental or decorative weights and chains. 

Quartz cuckoo clocks are available with or without music; the models that come with music play 12 different tunes that alternate each hour. Some models feature the sound of a real cuckoo bird in a forest environment. 

Most quartz cuckoo clocks feature a light sensor for automatic night shut off to automatically mute any sound when the room gets dark.
