August Schwer Cuckoo Clock

This clock shows a typical large Black Forest farm house.
Black Forest farm houses often have a huge roof surface. There was need for as much storage space as possible, to have enough room for straw and fodder to get the lifestock through the long winters.
Since these farms were often far away from the next village, the isolated farms had their own little chapel. Just like this one, they were built next to the farm house.
This clock has various moving elements. The two beerdrinkers at the table on the front lift their beer glasses one after the other with the chiming of the clock. At the same time, the woman in the window moves her head from side to side. As if she was saying, those two, already at the beer again...
On the balcony, the dancing figurines turn with the music.
