This Black Forest cuckoo clock by Schneider is an heirloom that showcases the best old world craftsmanship. Hand-carved in the Black Forest region of Germany, the distinctive timepiece depicts a quaint forest cottage complete with detailed floral and leaf carvings. The time is displayed by easy-to-read hands and wooden dial. Precision timing mechanics keep the happy cuckoo bird on schedule every hour. The nighttime silence feature is conveniently located on the side or bottom of the housing. Decorative pinecone counter weights wind and maintain the precise German Regula one day movement. The assembly measures 9.1H x 7.1W x 5.9D 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.
