This small Black Forest House cuckoo clock is beautifully hand painted by a Black Forest artisan. The painted decorative flowers help to set off the scene with a fountain and tree in the foreground.
The clock is made by Anton Schneider in Schonach, Germany and uses the German Regula 25 movement which is reliable and easy to service. Two cast iron pine cones apply gravity to the brass, tarnish resistant chains which drive the movement, time and cuckoo call. A night shut-off switch is also standard for quiet time or night use. The pendulum swings back and forth to allow the escapement of the mechanical mechanism.
