This musical cuckoo clock has a hand spliced shingle roof and carved edelweiss flowers attached to the clock case. There is a hand carved tree with a hand carved dog standing next to the accordion player. When the clock strikes the hour the cuckoo bird will pop out of the door and call the hour. At the bottom of the hour cuckoo will call one time only.
This clock features animated dog, water wheel, accordion player and dancers. 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.
The cuckoo clock is made by Anton Schneider in Schonach, Germany. It is 13.8 inches tall and uses a German Regula movement which is reliable and easy to service. Three cast iron pine cones apply gravity to the tarnish resistant chains which drive the movement, time and cuckoo call. The pendulum gently swings back and forth to control the timing of this fine Black Forest cuckoo clock.
