This is a large and beautifully hand-carved cuckoo clock which speaks of old-world charm and craftsmanship. It has dimensional carvings of stag head and live, upright, squirrels holding acorns. A hunting horn, ammunition pouch, and guns, are all surrounded by carved oak leaves.
When the clock strikes the hour or half-hour the door opens, and the cuckoo bird appears and calls along with the clock's gong strike.
This clock is hand made in the Black Forest in Germany by Rombach and Haas. The mechanical brass movements are driven by three weights shaped like pine cones. Time escapes with the tick of a traditional pendulum. The bird and dancers move along with the mechanically produced music and cuckoo call. The sound of the bird is produced by wooden whistles and the music box movement is hand made in Switzerland.
The packaging even has old-world charm, as only paper is used. The factory packing is all made with renewable materials. This clock would be perfect for those who love to hike, hunt or enjoy wildlife.
