A Traditional Chalet Cuckoo Clock By SCHNEIDER

This pleasing 1 Day Mechanical Cuckoo Clock is 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 34cm in height*, this beautiful clock portrays a delightful scene in the bavarian countryside, featuring a multi level chalet house with a unique half timbered facade and a hand laid shingled roof. Out the front of the chalet to the right is a wood chopper; whilst a water wheel and bench seat are featured to the left.

This fascinating scene also includes a wooden clock dial in the centre of the chalet, and hand painted details including green window shutters and flowers in the windowsill. Directly above the clock dial are colourful dancers situated on a balcony, underneath the cuckoo bird. Rounding out this unique clock is a timber pendulum that hangs below the clock itself, along with the weights.

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). The in-built cuckoo of this clock calls the time each hour and once at half past through a door that opens, with an automatic night off function to allow you a sound sleep that runs from 8:30pm till 8am the next day. There is also the function to silence the clock altogether should that be preferred. There are two melodies that alternate with this clock after the cuckoo calls - Edelweiss and Happy Wanderer. This particular clock is a 1 day mechanism, and therefore needs to be wound once a day. The particular automaton (moving parts) for this clock include the wood chopper, the water wheel, and the dancers on the balcony who twirl when the music plays on the full hour.

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.
