This Black Forest chalet cuckoo clock has animated dancers, water wheel, a jumping goat and moving dog. This is a very colorful cuckoo clock starting with the shutter doors and hand painted dancers. There are flower arrangements under the windows. Grandpa is watching with his trusty dog as Heidi is tending her goat. A boy is standing next to the tree and water fountain.
The clock is powered by a German Regula movement which must be wound daily. Three cast iron pine cones apply gravity to the tarnish resistant chains which drive the movement, time and cuckoo call. The Swiss music box plays 2, 22 note melodies as the dancers dance and water wheel turns. The goat and dog move during the call of cuckoo.
The dial, numerals, hands and cuckoo bird are all made of wood. There is a night shut off switch for quiet time and night use. This cuckoo clock is made by Anton Schneider in Schonach, Germany.
