This expertly hand-carved Black Forest Cuckoo Clock Chalet Style has a one-day movement and plays music on the full hour while the wooden cuckoo calls every half and full hour. It has two great tunes that will play alternatingly: “Edelweiss” and “Der Fröhliche Wanderer” (The Cheerful Wanderer). There is a manual night shutoff to silence the cuckoo during the night. The clock measures 13 x 11,4 x 8,3 inches (33 × 29 × 21cm).
Black Forest Cuckoo Clock Chalet Style Scene
This Black Forest cuckoo clock depicts a beautifully decorated Black Forest scene with a typical mountain farmhouse with wooden shingles. In the open space above the dial, you see a group of dancers in traditional costumes who start dancing every time the music plays and also the mill wheel turns. In front of the house is a craftsman doing something you don’t see very often anymore: he’s making wooden shingles for the roof and moves whenever the music plays. This Black Forest cuckoo clock pays homage to a dying craft that is preserved in the region.
