This clock returns to the simplicity of the original Bahnhausle design, foregoing folkloric ornaments. The only remaining reminder are the two black-laquered iron weights in the shape of pine cones. The rest of the clock is a distilled form of the classic German Black Forest cuckoo clock.
When the clock strikes the hour or half-hour the door opens, a cuckoo appears and calls along with the clock's gong strike.
This clock is hand made in the Black Forest in Germany. The mechanical brass movement is driven by two weights and time escapes with the tick of a traditional pendulum. The cuckoo call sound is made by two wooden whistles with bellows inside the clock case.
Even the packaging has old-world charm, as only paper is used. The factory packing is all made with renewable materials. This clock makes a great gift for the young and old alike. Perfect for modern or traditional decor, including environments in the Bauhaus, Craftsman, Mission, Usonian, or Danish Modern styles.
