This Black Forest chalet cuckoo clock features a man in traditional German attire drinking a beer outdoors. He's surrounded by hand-carved trees and a dog and a deer drinking buddies. The cuckoo clock cottage has two windows with wooden shutters.
On every hour the man raises and lowers his tankard as the cuckoo bird cuckoos the hour. On the hour, every hour, the cuckoo bird will emerge from behind a swinging door above the clock dial and counts out the hour by cuckooing once for each hour (for example: at one o'clock the bird will cuckoo once. At eight o'clock the bird will cuckoo eight times). The half hour is announced with one cuckoo call. There is also a manual night shut-off switch that allows you to mute the cuckoo sound and stop the beer drinker.
Two cast iron pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by two separate brass chains. The hand-made pendulum continuously swings back and forth controlling the timing of the clock.
The 30 hour all brass mechanical "Regula" movement (which is produced in the Black Forest of Germany) is wound easily once per day by simply pulling on the chains to raise the two pine cone weights. One weight powers the time and the other weight powers the beer drinker, the cuckoo and cuckoo call.
This clock is 11 inches in height and 10 inches across as you look at it. As such this fits into our "medium" size clock filter.

We consider this to be a special part of their character and will make the one you purchase unique to you, and only you.
