Black Forest Cuckoo Clock - Chalet with Animated Teeter-Totter by Schneider features the intricate detail and precision that has made Schneider cuckoo clocks international favorites. Hand-carved in the magnificent Black Forest region of Germany, this distinctive timepiece depicts a handsome forest chalet decorated with colorful moving figurines. Hand-painted children dance to the music every hour, while two children teeter-totter to the hourly cuckoo call. The clock plays an hourly melody, and precision timing mechanics keep it right on schedule. The nighttime silence feature is conveniently located on the side or bottom of the housing. Decorative pinecone counter weights wind and maintain precise eight-day movement. The assembly measures 13 inches.
In 1848, Anton Schneider began the design and production of hand-crafted cuckoo clocks. Since then, six generations of Schneiders have carried on the family tradition of fine clock making. From its factories located in the heart of Germany's Black Forest, highly skilled artisans hand-carve, paint, and assemble heirloom-quality clocks by exacting standards. Hand-crafting and precise attention to detail are what make the Anton Schneider company industry leaders worldwide.
