A Clock With A Story To Tell

This delightful Fox & Grapes 1 Day Mechanical Carved Cuckoo Clock 46cm By HÖNES represents a fine example of a genuine, high quality hand-crafted Black Forest cuckoo clock, produced from Schwarzwald in Germany, a region otherwise known as the Black Forest. 

Measuring 46cm in height*, this adorable clock features a fox & 3 bunches of grapes along with an arrangement of leaves adorning the clock’s body, a design commonly featured on many of the early cuckoo clocks and still make up one of the most popular styles of cuckoo clock carving today. Crowning the clock is a beautifully hand-carved raven which is distinctly different from the standard "bird & 5 leaf" models.

This clock tells the story of a raven who sits in a branch eating a bunch of grapes, however, a cunning fox lurks below, wanting the grapes for himself! In a ploy 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 puffs out her chest and lets out the most stunning call, echoing throughout the woodlands, only to have the bunch of grapes fall from the  branch in which she is perched upon, into the open jaws of the cunning fox.

The in-built cuckoo of this clock calls the time each hour and once at half past, with a manual shut-off mode that is enabled by lifting and pulling a lever. This particular clock needs to be wound once a day.

This beautifully designed clock by HÖNES is a charming timepiece, suitable for those looking for a quality traditional wind up 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.
