A unique fairy-tale version of a clock mounted on a special wall board that’s both impressive in size and magnificent in detail. The story of Hansel and Gretel is the brainchild of the Brothers Grimm, and this is an August Schwer tribute to the German authors’ famous contribution to children’s literature–after all, it’s Black Forest artisans who know how to best portray the mysterious atmosphere of the forest the two children were lost in.

The most unusual feature of this model is the stylish wooden wall board on which the clock is mounted. This adds an impressive amount of height and depth to the clock, and has additional embellishments on it like the two majestic evergreens that stretch out from the sides at the top; and the garden decor, firs, and little bench below, making it a highly unusual and rare timepiece.

The witch’s cottage has the elements of the traditional forest farmhouse chalet with its miniature low sloping roof, angular lines, decorative panels, and pretty curtained windows. The base of the clock house is where the action is–beginning with the three fairy-tale characters of Hansel, Gretel, and the evil witch. The expressions and stance of the innocent children and the malevolent witch are works of art in themselves. The exterior of the witch’s cottage is realistically depicted by lofty fir trees, shrubs, garden implements, and even a little tabby cat.

When the cuckoo announces the hour, village dancers in brightly-colored traditional costumes rotate to the happy strains of the Swiss music box giving that extra touch of vitality to a very lively scene that’s sure to evoke nostalgic childhood memories. What better way to preserve or pass them on to the next generation than to purchase this classic fairy-tale brilliantly preserved in wood? Rest assured that the Black Forest tradition of guaranteed craftsmanship and quality is also part of the legacy you will inherit along with this masterpiece.
