Whimsical and sometimes realistic animations such as this one were commonly reproduced mechanically in the Black Forest clocks since the early Nineteenth Century. Here, a girl moves her arm to feed the geese, and a boy turns towards her with gifts while the music plays.
Above, a stork waits on the roof.
This eight-day, musical cuckoo clock features a large 36-note music box with an excellent sound. It has a night shut-off lever so you can turn off the music and cuckoo and leave the time-keeping function running.
The dial, hands, and numbers and bird are all of solid wood. The shingles on the roof are individually laid, and all the carvings are done by hand. Among other details, this clock includes logs that were commonly placed on Black Forest roofs to hold the huge amounts of piling snow.
This fine cuckoo clock is by Rombach und Haas and is exclusively available through North Coast Imports. It is an Original Black Forest Clock, certified by the VDS.
Each clock is made and packaged BY HAND by Black Forest craftsmen the same way they have been for hundreds of years. The bird and dancers move along with the mechanically produced music and cuckoo call.
