Made in the Black Forest region of Germany, this clock has an antique finish and features a delicately carved bird on top of the design. The white coloring of the dials and Roman numerals help to emphasize that, not only does this clock have an elegant design, but it also serves as a functional timepiece. Every detail on this clock is handcrafted by skilled artisans and made from real Black Forest linden wood. Decorative metal pinecones serve as counterweights to the strikes and cuckoo calls that come on both half and full hours.
The Schneider Cuckoo Clock Company
Anton Schneider began producing cuckoo clocks in 1848 in his farmhouse in Schonach. Now in its 6th generation of artisan cuckoo clock makers, Schneider continues to produce cuckoo clocks with the high-quality craftsmanship and intricate detailing that has become synonymous with the Black Forest region. Today, the Schneider Factory is one of the largest and most modern cuckoo clock factories in the Black Forest. Despite their size, Schneider continues to hand carve every cuckoo clock, utilizing traditional artisan methods and quality craftsmanship. Schneider's high standards for clock design extend to their workers as well. New woodcarvers go through extensive training, and many Schneider clock makers stay with the company for at least twenty years. Because of this, Schneider is one of the leading cuckoo clock makers in the entire world.
