This Black Forest House cuckoo clock has an animated wood chopper. There are carved leaves attached to the clock case. When the clock strikes the hour the cuckoo bird will come out of the door and call the hour. At the bottom of the hour cuckoo will call one time only. This cuckoo clock is one of Anton Schneider’s best-selling clocks.
This clock features animated wood chopper, water wheel 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 Swiss music box plays one of two melodies after the call of cuckoo and is located in the clock interior.
The cuckoo clock is made by Anton Schneider in Schonach, Germany. It is 13 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.
