Chalet 8-day Gutshof cuckoo clock with music 58cm by August Schwer

The pinnacle of all things wondrous and striking about a cuckoo clock is found in this work of art from August Schwer. 

This very large traditional chalet-style cuckoo clock presents every detail, which stands for the uniqueness of a Black Forest Farm house. The clock house itself represents the specific building techniques of the Black Forest with it's typical shingle roof and partial open stonework building at the base. 

Black Forest farm steads are often isolated buildings spread thin over the hilly countryside. A characteristic of such a farm house is the bell tower with the fire bell on the roof. In the case of an emergency, help could be called with these bells.

All these details, at first glance it's beautiful adornments, have vital functions for a Black Forest farm house. The central element of the decoration is the oompah band to the right of the clock. All four of the musicians move as soon as the clock strikes and the music starts to play. Each of them turns right and left with the music.Another moving element of the clock is the farmer's wife in Black Forest (Gutach Valley) costume, ringing the bell. She lifts her right arm and pulls on the rope. At the same time, the bell in the bell tower swings and chimes. 

All figurines and decorative elements are made of wood and are hand-painted. The dancing figurines are high quality children figurines, each one a different figurine. All parts made of wood, wooden dial, hands, cuckoo, pendulum.

This cuckoo clock is fitted with the of highest of quality Swiss music boxes (Reuge) which plays two melodies: Edelweiss and Happy Wanderer.
