The Black Forest Cuckoo Clock with Beer Drinker, Wood Chopper, and Water-Wheel by Schneider is a classic come to life. Made in the age-old tradition, this chalet-style cuckoo clock is hand-crafted by artisans in the Black Forest region of Germany, using native German linden wood. Finished in a warm antique wash, it features a wooden face, case, and hands, and wooden figurines that are hand-carved and painted in high detail. Each time the hour comes around, this clock jumps to life: the beer drinkers raise their glasses, the wood chopper swings, and the water-wheel turns, all while the cuckoo springs out and a Swiss melody plays. This clock features two 22-note melodies that alternate each hour.
This clock features a nighttime shut-off switch and operates on an eight-day movement, which requires winding once a week.
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.Shop All Anton Schneider
