Schneider Quartz Black Forest 11 Inch Cuckoo Clock
Description of Black Forest Cuckoo Clock Schneider Quartz 11 Inch: Cuckoo Clocks
The Quartz Black Forest Cuckoo Clock with Beer Drinker, Dog and Water-Wheel by Schneider is a beautiful piece of workmanship, as well as a conversation piece. This chalet-style cuckoo clock is painstakingly hand-carved and painted by Black Forest German artisans. Constructed of genuine linden wood, it features a wooden clock face and hands, as well as exquisitely detailed figurines on the front ledge that come to life at the top of each hour. The beer drinker drinks and the dog moves while the water-wheel turns.
This cuckoo clock features music that plays after the call of the cuckoo. A different melody plays each hour: songs include "Happy Wanderer," "Edelweiss," "Dr. Zhivago," "Swan Lake," theme from the "Deer Hunter," "Loreli," "Home Sweet Home," "Sound of Silence," "Clementine," "The Entertainer," "Love Theme from 'The Godfather,'" and "Fur Elise."
This piece operates on a quartz movement, which means no winding is required. Batteries not included.
About Anton Schneider Artisan and craftsman Anton Schneider began producing cuckoo clocks from his German farmhouse in 1848. Based on those humble beginnings, the Schneider legacy has lasted for six generations, and their clocks are just as beautiful and carefully crafted as they were back then. Known for their love of detail combined with old world handicraft skills, the highly skilled artisans at Schneider labor to produce clocks that are works of art as well as functional timepieces. With a dedicated staff of specialized workers, the Schneider factory based in the heart of the Black Forest is one of the most popular producers of classic cuckoo clocks in the world today.
Schneider cuckoo clocks are still hand-crafted with the same methods used by Anton Schneider back in 1848. Each clock is made from seasoned, carefully selected Black Forest Linden wood, then put through rigorous quality control inspections. Each clock includes a two-year manufacturer's warranty.
About the Black Forest region The Black Forest region of Germany is a wooded range of mountains in the southwest part of the country. Bordered by the Rhine valley, this beautiful region has been known for its production of classic cuckoo clocks since the mid 1700s. The "bird call" feature that makes cuckoo clocks famous is said to have originated in the Black Forest area. Today, the region is home to some of the finest clockmakers in the world, including makers of classic wood cuckoo clocks like Anton Schneider. Clocks in this region are often still produced with handicraft methods of centuries gone by.
