The 'Dumpling Eater' is a certified German authentic replica of a Black Forest clock of the early 19th century, a time when a variety of animated figures were used before the cuckoo bird became fashionable. Bell ringing monks, laughing faces, beer drinkers and the dumpling eaters were just some of the winsome examples used for these “pre-cuckoo” clock versions. Built by craftsmen well known for their carving skills, this clock is a great example of many high quality traditional Black Forest clocks.
This is the last clock like this available as it is no longer possible to produce this model.
The hand-carved and hand-painted dumpling eater chews his dumplings, counting each gong strike on the hour and once on the half hour. With moving eyes, arm and an open mouth, watch in fascination as he feeds himself a dumpling on each gong strike. An enamel dial and antique brass weights add charm and character to this amazing timepiece.
Manual night-time shut-off is enabled by lifting and pulling a lever on the base of the clock. Hand carved and built by skilled craftsmen this clock is 63cm from top to bottom. This measurement does not include the height of the weights or pendulum. For full specifications please scroll down the page and click to expand.
