Cuckoo clock, Winding weights
Traditionalists and collectors alike will love the Black Forest Cuckoo Clock with Beer Drinker, Dog and Water-Wheel by Schneider. This exquisitely crafted clock is handmade by German artisans in the renowned Black Forest region. It is made from linden wood, which is native to the Black Forest, and features hand-carved and painted details that show years of experience.
Watch this clock come to life at the top of each hour. The beer drinker drinks, the dog moves, and the water-wheel spins, as the cuckoo sings and melodies ring out. This clock is equipped with two 22-note Swiss music box melodies, which alternately play each time the clock chimes.
This piece operates on a one-day movement that requires winding daily, and comes complete with a nighttime shut-off option.
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.
