Looking for an exceptional anniversary, birthday gift, or souvenir for your beloved parents or grandparents? This extraordinary creation by August Schwer is guaranteed to thrill them with its endearing and highly detailed three-dimensional portrait of a contented Black Forest couple enjoying each other’s company, country cuisine, and the invigorating Alpine atmosphere–all of it brilliantly etched forever in wood by some of Germany’s finest artisans.
Its impressive-looking vintage chalet house stands tall with a little annex that serves as a quaint little chapel–an extension that was fairly common on forest farmsteads that were usually at some distance from each other. A replica of a lovely young lady in traditional dress stands outside it with the bell-rope in hand as if summoning foresters to worship. The pivotal point of the entire clock is the handsome old couple that has been carved with the greatest attention to detail. The lifelike stances and expressions on the seated figurines are truly amazing: the old man is depicted placidly smoking his pipe as his wife serenely gazes on with a basket of fruit on her lap. All around them are the familiar elements of the farmstead including a mill wheel, fir trees, outdoor benches, a table loaded with local delicacies, pails, and a coaster wagon.
The chalet’s low, sloping roof closely mirrors the traditional forest farmhouse coverings with its individually carved shingles that cover the entire surface. An unusual light walnut stain on the house highlights the varying depths of its decorative paneling, and also enhances the beauty of the miniature curtained windows and their flower boxes.
Whenever the clock strikes the hour, the pretty bellringer rhythmically pulls the bell-rope and the dancing figurine couples on the balcony, as well as the mill wheel below, begin rotating to the cheerful sounds of the music box, lending a great deal of vibrancy to an utterly delightful scene. This legacy of a timepiece comes to you with the firm assurance of design, craftsmanship, and quality from one of the Black Forest’s most respected clock manufacturers.
