The Bahnhäusle design has been an incredibly popular design since 1850. Friedrich Eisenlohr of Furtwangen, Germany first submitted the design as part of a contest for the Grand Duchy of Baden. His inspiration was a railroad guard’s house overrun by vines and leaves.
When the clock strikes the hour or half-hour the door opens, a cuckoo appears and calls along with the clock’s gong strike. After the cuckoo calls, music plays from the symphonic music-box mechanism made in Switzerland.
This clock is hand made in the Black Forest in Germany. The mechanical brass movements are driven by three weights and time escapes with the tick of a traditional pendulum. The cuckoo call sound is made by two wooden whistles with bellows inside the clock case.
Even the packaging has old-world charm, as only paper is used. The factory packing is all made with recycled materials. This clock makes a great gift for the young and old alike. Perfect for modern or traditional decor!
This is one of a select few Black Forest clocks that can be special ordered with authentic hand-cut, bone hands and wooden weight shells. These special hands are hand cut from real animal bone, the same as they would have been in the Nineteenth Century. This option will only be offered on a few select pieces with the addition of beautiful wooden weight shells. Be sure to email us and ask for more information.
