This cuckoo clock is made by the Anton Schneider Black Forest Cuckoo Clock Company in Schonach Germany. The clock is made of extra deep carved linden wood which is a reforestable product grown in the Black Forest. The wood carvings are of a single bird which sits on the crest with hand-carved leaves on each side. Below are carved branches, more leaves and two birds on the side. This cuckoo clock is 13.8" tall and uses the German Regula #25 mechanical mechanism, which is the best on the market today. This beautiful cuckoo clock has a honey colored finish. It also has wooden dial, hands, cuckoo bird and the standard 2 year warranty.
At the top of the hour the cuckoo bird will emerge from the door at the top and cuckoo once for each hour and then go back inside as the door shuts behind. At the bottom of the hour cuckoo will call only once and return to his nest. This cuckoo clock must be wound daily by pulling down on each chain opposite the weights. Gravity drives the cuckoo call and time so the clock is very energy efficient.
