A Colourful Swiss House Mechanical Clock With A Swinging Doll
Great things come in small packages, and this colourful clock is no exception. This delightful timepiece was produced by clock makers ENGSTLER from the Black Forest in Germany, and makes an excellent gift idea.
Measuring 12cm in height*, this beautiful clock resembles a Swiss house, a popular style of chalet building in the Swiss alps. Chalet style clocks are commonly shaped as alpine houses, featuring details that represent life in the mountain regions of Europe (around southern Germany, Switzerland and Austria). This particular clock has a large amount of hand painted features on the chalet facade, roof and base, including flowers such as the famous Edelweiss flower depicted on the base. This white star shaped flower is unique to the alps of Germany, Austria and Switzerland mainly. Its name means noble white, and it represents strength, toughness, bravery and courage. This is because the flower survives the harshest winters at very high altitudes.
Additional features include a deer and a mushroom out the front of the chalet. Rounding out this delightful scene is a wooden clock dial in the centre of the clock, and a blue bird above the dial which moves back and forward, whilst decorative weights hang below the clock itself.
Perhaps the most unique feature of this delightful clock is the addition of a swinging doll sitting on a swing below the clock, acting as the pendulum. Dressed in traditional Black Forest attire, the doll bounces up and down on a spring, providing a visual delight that is sure to entertain all ages. As this clock is mechanical, it requires winding once a day via a key in the dial.
Please note that this clock is not a cuckoo clock- it does not feature a cuckoo bird, nor a cuckoo call or music. It is a timepiece only.
