Every once in a while a cuckoo clock comes along which exemplifies the majesty of the Black Forest cuckoo clock. This stunning carved 'hunting-style' 8-day movement traditional musical cuckoo clock is just such a clock. Designed in the classic "Hunting-style" of traditional Black Forest cuckoo clocks, it is crafted by renowned Black Forest cuckoo clock manufacturer 'Hubert Herr' in Triberg, Germany. 

Design

Standing at the monumental height of 140cm (55 inches), this stunning carved traditional cuckoo clock exemplifies the immense skill of the master carvers at the 'Hubert Herr' workshop in Triberg, Germany.

Beautifully hand-crafted out of wood sourced locally from the Black Forest in Germany, this work of art is adorned on it's top by a three-dimensional stag head with large antlers and realistic eyes made of glass and inset into it's head. Realistic oak leaves seamlessly surrounding the peripheries of the clock and beautifully frame it's other elements relating to the theme of "the hunt". Such elements include the game animals - the hare, the pheasant, the two smaller birds - hung from the clock in a somewhat macabre but realistic fashion, as well as the beautifully carved and realistic crossed rifles, and the fürst pless horn with it's leather strap hanging off, encircling the wooden clock dial. The organic and realistic carvings on this clock, it's theme, along with it's immense scale, complexity and artistry is really something to behold. 

This traditional carved cuckoo clock also comes complete with it's own hand-carved and painted cuckoo bird which, upon the hour, animates from behind it's little door and sings it's 'cuckoo' for the corresponding number of hours. It then plays a short melody, alternating between either 'Edelweiss' or 'Happy Wanderer' per hour, whilst the tiny hand-painted village dancers revolve and twirl through the two archways. This sound can be switched off at any time using a manual lever. 

This 8-day movement carved cuckoo clock, placed in any living room, hallway or study, is bound to add an immense sense of grandeur, rustic charm and take on a life of it's own. 

Cuckoo Chime

It features a charming little 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. 

Music

The cuckoo clock plays it's melodies through a mechanical Swiss-made music box that alternates between the songs "Edelweiss" and "Happy wanderer". The sound can be switched off at night with a manual lever. 

This clock features:

    • Moving cuckoo bird which moves out from behind it's door and chimes with it’s ’cuckoo' sound on the hour. 
    • Moving 'village dancers' which twirl as the carousel revolves through the two arched doorways. 
    • Equipped with a German brass rack-strike movement by Hubert Herr which keeps perfect time as long as the clock is wound.
    • Equipped with Swiss-made music box which alternates between playing two different melodies upon the hour - 'The Happy Wanderer' and 'Edelweiss'.
    • Moving pendulum that sways side-to-side.
    • Manual night-time sound shut-off lever.
    • 8-day movement (which means it needs to be wound manually every eight days).

    8-day Movement

          This cuckoo clock has 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.
