Black Forest Clock of the Year, 2003 exquisitely carved birdcage cuckoo clock with animated bird.
This cuckoo clock is an example of the finest carving available. The clock hangs on an intricately carved backboard full of trees and brambles. The clock itself has a Bahnhausle design with metal cage housing. A life-sized, hand-carved and hand-painted bird resides inside the cage.
The bird flaps its wings and moves its beak during the cuckoo call. The clock-on-backboard design allows for incredible depth and dimension in the carvings. The three-dimensional pine trees come to a delicate point above, and there is even real moss at the base of the trees!
The bird is finely painted to show even more depth and lifelike realism.
This grand piece is by Rombach und Haas and is available through Cuckoo Kingdom. It is an Official Black Forest Clock, certified by the VDS. This clock was also the winner of the VDS Best Black Forest Clock of the Year Award for 2003.
