This is another very special piece by Sternreiter from a talented carver, deep in the Black Forest. The Baroque has an incredibly detailed carving with a lot of dimension. The arabesques overwhelm this beautiful timepiece.
When the clock strikes the hour or half-hour the door opens, a cuckoo appears and calls along with the clock’s gong strike. This cuckoo bird also flaps his wings and the gong has a particularly deep and rich sound.
This clock is hand made in the Black Forest in Germany. The mechanical brass movement is driven by two 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.
If you like this clock be sure to also check out models 8227, 3406, 8226, and 8332.
