Click to see reviews
The mesmerizing engraving of a large forest eagle alighting on the chimney stack of a hunter’s lodge while a hunter stalks his prey is brilliantly depicted on this timepiece by Germany’s award-winning clockmaker. Once again, August Schwer Clocks has laid hold of the most dramatic moments of life in the Black Forest and skillfully transferred them into the timeless wooden portrait that adorns this classic creation.
The magnificent depiction of the eagle landing on the chimney stack is a highly unusual carving, making this model a rarity in the clock world. Meanwhile, the clock base is the arena in which an amazingly detailed hunter figurine with hunting gear is intent on targeting his prey; while to his left, the hunted chamois is ready to take flight from a rocky perch. The eagle has long been an enduring symbol of majesty and strength in forest folklore and the chamois is well known for its contribution of milk, leather, and wool to the woodland community. Both creatures on this clock, therefore, contribute to the authenticity of the Black Forest environment that the craftsmen have endeavored to create.
The lovely chalet house is framed by carvings of elegant forest trees on its sides and leaves at its base, creating a deep woodland aura around the prominent vintage-style clock dial at its center. Its miniature roof, with its quaint chimney stack, is highly reminiscent of the farmhouse coverings that were traditionally hand-thatched by its industrious inhabitants. Every time the clock announces the hour, the enchanting dancing figurines on the balcony revolve to the cheerful strains of the music box, adding even more vibrancy to a highly captivating scene. This valuable creation comes to you with the firm guarantee of design, craftsmanship, and quality from one of the most reputed clock manufacturers in Germany.
