Model #8370B Chalet cuckoo clock with Angry Hausfrau and Beer-drinker
Whimsical and sometimes realistic animations such as this one were commonly reproduced mechanically in the Black Forest since the early Nineteenth Century. Here, a woman beats her soused husband over the head with a rolling pin. One strike for each hour. The drinking man moves his beer stein, seemingly unaware of the clobbering he receives.
This eight-day, musical cuckoo clock features a large 36-note music box with an excellent sound. It has a night shut-off lever so you can turn off the music and cuckoo and leave the time-keeping function running.
The dial, hands, and numbers and bird are all of solid wood. The shingles on the roof are individually laid, and all the carvings are done by hand. Among other details, this clock includes logs that were commonly placed on Black Forest roofs to hold the huge amounts of piling snow.
This "Angry Hausfrau" cuckoo clock is by Rombach und Haas and is available through Cuckoo Kingdom, Inc. It is an Original Black Forest Clock, certified by the VDS.
The clock comes packaged in genuine recycled materials, each clock made and packaged BY HAND by Black Forest craftsmen the same way they have been for hundreds of years. The bird and dancers move along with the mechanically produced music and cuckoo call.
