A Hand Crafted Black Forest Cuckoo Clock

This charming 1 Day Mechanical Chalet Cuckoo Clock 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 38cm in height*, this endearing chalet style cuckoo clock portrays the scene of an alpine chalet in the mountainous woodlands of Germany. The chalet features a colourful scene that includes a couple of children playing musical instruments outside the chalet- a girl sitting on a rocking chair and a boy sitting on a pile of chopped logs. Additional features include a shingled roof, hand painted window shutters and flowers in the windowsill. Chalet cuckoo clocks are the most famous and common type of cuckoo clock, and are often shaped as alpine houses and feature carvings that represent life in the mountain region of Europe (mainly around Southern Germany, Switzerland and Austria). The overall design is rounded out by colourful dancers situated on a balcony above the clock dial. Whilst most cuckoo clocks that feature dancers depict black forest dancers in traditional attire, this particular clock features young children with animals instead. Rounding out this unique clock is a wooden clock dial and lovely timber pendulum that hangs below the clock itself, along with the weights.

Chalet style cuckoo clocks can range from simple arrangements of carved features to very detailed scenes with many moving parts (known as automaton). The particular automaton for this cuckoo clock include the children with their animals on the balcony that spin when the music plays, and the rocking chair which also moves.

The in-built cuckoo of this beautiful clock calls the full time each hour and once on the half hour, with a manual override to silence the cuckoo altogether should that be preferred. This delightful clock would be well suited for a childs bedroom, and is sure to spark a sense of joy to whoever gazes upon the lovely scene.

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.
