Schneider 18 Inch Water-Wheel Cuckoo ClockItem#: HN-SCC146
Cuckoo clock, Winding weights
Enjoy the beauty and quality of years of craftsmanship experience with the Black Forest Cuckoo Clock with Beer Drinkers, Dancing Couples, and Water-Wheel by Schneider. This classic chalet-style cuckoo clock jumps to life each time the hour strikes. The cuckoo sings, the beer drinker drinks, dancing couples swing, and the water-wheel turns, all to the tune of two 22-note Swiss melodies, which alternate every hour. This extraordinary clock is hand-crafted by German artisans and features solid linden wood construction, with a wooden clock face and hands, and a warm antique finish. Hand-painted, hand-carved figurines add a high level of detail. It operates on an eight-day movement that requires winding once each week, and includes 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.
