Crafted in the Black Forest by renowned cuckoo clock manufacturers 'August Schwer', this stunning large carved Black Forest cuckoo clock depicts the theme of the "Fox and the Raven". A favourite of Aesops fables, 'the fox and the raven' is the story of a wily fox who outsmarts a raven for a piece of cheese. 

In the fable a raven has found a piece of cheese and has retired to a branch to eat it. A fox, wanting the cheese for himself, cleverly decides to flatter the raven in a ploy to steal the cheese. The fox says "Oh, you are so beautiful! But I wonder if your voice is just as beautiful to match?". Blushing, the raven proudly puffs out it's chest, takes a deep breath, and lets out it's most sweetest 'caw-caw' only to have the cheese fall from it's mouth and be quickly devoured by the cunning fox waiting under the tree. 

All August Schwer clocks are constructed with a wooden dial, wooden hands, cuckoo (August Schwer exclusive life-like wooden cuckoo) and wooden pendulum while it’s weights are made of cast iron. 

CUCKOO CHIME

It features a charming hand-painted cuckoo bird which animates from behind it's little door and sings in the hour (a succession of 'cuckoo' calls, corresponding to the time of day). The sound can be turned off manually at night with a 'sound-off' lever. 

8-day Movement

This clock is powered by 8-day movement meaning approximately every eight days the clock needs to be manually wound. The act of winding the cuckoo clock is very easy and only requires someone to gently pull on the chains so that the weights are drawn back to their utmost position. Gravity does the rest and ensures the clock can be kept perfectly on time as the weight lowers and slowly pulls the chain back through the clock-work mechanism.
