Clock makers in the Black Forest of Germany have been handcrafting cuckoo clocks since the early 1700s. This original is another masterpiece reflecting centuries of expertise and charm. Aged woods (linden, spruce, and pine) were used to carve the traditional case, pendulum, and trim. A hand-pulled chain sets brass pinecone weights for a one-day movement. Cuckoo chirps the hour and half-hour with a classic two-note call.
