This beautiful piece is reminiscent of Black Forest clocks of the mid-Ninteenth Century with a raised trellis of leaves and beams. A beautiful deer adorns the top along with grape leaves around the rest of the clock. This is a large and striking clock. The large wooden weights make the clock a centerpiece of attention.
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 piece features wooden hands and numbers.
This clock is hand made 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.
