This beautiful timepiece would make the ideal gift for a mother, wife, daughter, or anyone who would appreciate endearing moments framed timelessly in wood. Over the years, August Schwer Clock Factory has taken great pride in reproducing scenes of the legendary Black Forest that inspire and uplift its customers, like this very special model that highlights a young forest girl and her goose blissfully engrossed in each other’s company.
Farm animals play an important role in the lives of foresters, and they’ve always been well cared for by the farmers and their families, including the children. This clock captures this admirable element of farm life through its heartwarming depiction of the girl and her goose friend, as well as a sheep who gazes on contentedly. The hand-carved and hand-painted life-like figurines of the young lady and her pets are larger than usual for a clock of this size, and are of exceptionally high quality. All around them are miniature embellishments of the typical farmhouse exterior like evergreens in various sizes, woodland shrubs, a garden bench, a fence, and a pail that effectively recreate the Black Forest atmosphere.
The clock chalet has an unusual block house style of construction which was found mostly on old log cabins. The roof of this lodge is notably different from the traditional farmhouse version because of the individual tree trunks that have been cut to size and neatly placed to form a compact and attractive covering for the house. On the paneled balcony above the very attractive vintage clock dial are intricately carved, beautiful replications of traditional dancing figurines who gracefully revolve to the strains of the music box whenever the clock strikes the hour. Every element of this winsome model is a treat for the senses, and is guaranteed to provide timeless hours of pleasure. Plus, it comes with the assurance of design, craftsmanship, quality, and service from one of the finest clock manufacturers in the region.
