Cuckoo Clock Mechanical 8 Day - Hones kissing couple on bench
This ornate and delicately hand made Chlaet Cuckoo Clock has many different features that represent the Black Forest area. This chalet has been made using two differently treated linden wood timbers, one in its natural form and the other in a light walnut stain. A hand made shingled roof, bell tower, ornate balcony and detailed window on this two story chalet give it a life like appearance. There are hand carved pine trees and a large solid wood Elderweiss flower at the base of the chalet. The cuckoo call is sounded once on the halft hour and on the full time according to the time. The young couple side towards each other and turn heads to kiss, the water seel turns and the figurines wearing traditional black forest clothing dance around to the music from the mechanically driven music box. There are two alternating melodies (Elderweiss and The Happy Wanderer) which play on the full hour only. The clock comes with a certificate of authenticity.
