Click to see reviews
Innovative design has always been a hallmark of August Schwer Clocks as demonstrated in this amazing rendition of the traditional woodland chalet. With its incredible attention to detail, this gem of a clock displays many features of the Black Forest farmhouse that are not usually seen in most cuckoo clocks today, making it a highly desirable collector’s item.
Black Forest farmhouses were home to families and their precious livestock that had to be well cared for during the long winter months. This special model is one of the few that exhibits the clever design of the upper storey that was mainly used as extra storage space for animal fodder. Since the space under the gable needed to be effectively utilized, a protruding balcony was built to make the area above as well as below it functional. The lovely details of the decorated windows, logs, and pails are an indication of how the extension was originally used by enterprising foresters. The cuckoo, as well as the placement of the cuckoo door, are also unique to this clock as they are custom-designed to fit the unusual construction of the clock’s balcony.
Other special and authentic chalet features replicated here are the two cozy annexes on its sides that were frequently attached to the main sections of farmhouses as families increased. The wide roof has individually crafted shingles spanning its entire surface that greatly add to its overall value. The clock’s generous base is an elaborate display of a forest chalet garden and surroundings, with the key figurine of a woodcutter at work taking the spotlight. His faithful dog stands guard near him, while all around are the refreshing details of forest trees, a millwheel, chopped logs, and familiar farmhouse equipment. Whenever the clock strikes the hour, the colorful dancing figurines on the balcony gracefully rotate to the sounds of the music box, adding to the vitality of this masterpiece. The firm assurance of stringent Black Forest quality and service from one of the best-known manufacturers in the region accompanies this fine purchase.
