This Anton Schneider chalet cuckoo clock features an animated wood chopper and 3D carved trees. The cuckoo clock has Black Forest charm from the old days. During the call of cuckoo the wood chopper chops wood with his trusty dog by his side. There are two 3D, hand carved trees on each side of the clock. The dial, numerals, hands and cuckoo bird are all made of wood. A night shut-off switch is also standard for quiet time or night use.
This clock is made by Schneider in Schonach, Germany. It is 10 inches tall and uses the German Regula model 25 movement which is reliable and easy to service. Two cast iron pine cones apply gravity to the tarnish resistant chains which drive the movement, time and cuckoo call. The dog is also hand carved to the scale of the cuckoo clock.
