This rare cuckoo clock is an example of the finest carvings available. This is a large cuckoo clock with excellent, full-depth carvings of birds surrounded by leaves and budding flowers.
It is an Official Black Forest Clock, certified by the VDS made by Rombach & Haas in Germany. This fine cuckoo clock is a true, one-of-a-kind, as only one piece was produced. The clock also holds a large, 36-note, Swiss music box that plays two melodies. The detailed and hand-carved dancers twirl and spin as the music plays!
The clock is driven by gravity which feeds the mechanical mechanism. This is accomplished by the three cast iron weights which hang on tarnish resistant brass chains. The chains apply the power to the drive gears in the clock producing the time, the cuckoo call and animated dancers. The cuckoo call is reproduced by air passing thru two bellows that are also actuated by the gravity. This could be considered a Green clock as even the tree the clock is made from is replanted upon harvest.
