Music and movement make the Black Forest Cuckoo Clock - Curved Roof Chalet with Animated Wood Chopper and Water-Wheel by Schneider an extraordinary piece you're sure to love. This hardwood clock is hand-constructed by German artisans in the famous Black Forest region of Germany. Each time the hour strikes, the hand-carved, hand-painted wood chopper and water-wheel spring into action while the wooden cuckoo sings out. A built-in Swiss music box with two 36-note melodies plays, too. This charming clock features a one-day movement, which means it requires daily winding, and has a nighttime shut-off switch for quiet evenings.
About Anton Schneider
Artisan and craftsman Anton Schneider began producing cuckoo clocks from his German farmhouse in 1848. Based on those humble beginnings, the Schneider legacy has lasted for six generations, and their clocks are just as beautiful and carefully crafted as they were back then. Known for their love of detail combined with old world handicraft skills, the highly skilled artisans at Schneider labor to produce clocks that are works of art as well as functional timepieces. With a dedicated staff of specialized workers, the Schneider factory based in the heart of the Black Forest is one of the most popular producers of classic cuckoo clocks in the world today.
Schneider cuckoo clocks are still hand-crafted with the same methods used by Anton Schneider back in 1848. Each clock is made from seasoned, carefully selected Black Forest Linden wood, then put through rigorous quality control inspections. Each clock includes a two-year manufacturer's warranty.
About the Black Forest region
The Black Forest region of Germany is a wooded range of mountains in the southwest part of the country. Bordered by the Rhine valley, this beautiful region has been known for its production of classic cuckoo clocks since the mid 1700s. The "bird call" feature that makes cuckoo clocks famous is said to have originated in the Black Forest area. Today, the region is home to some of the finest clockmakers in the world, including makers of classic wood cuckoo clocks like Anton Schneider. Clocks in this region are often still produced with handicraft methods of centuries gone by.
