August Schwer Cuckoo Clock
Cuckoo Clock with 8-day movement (mechanical), with music and dancers, and moving clock-seller figurine.
This clock has a theme innate to the Black Forest clock industry. The generations old clock seller tradition. Hundreds of years ago, clocks were sold by men travelling on foot around Germany, carrying as many clocks as possible with them on their backs. The clocks had been built during the winter months, during summer when the roads were accessible they were sold all over Germany and neighboring countries.
This is a very special cuckoo clock with a not entirely serious hunting scene. The hunter figurine has a movable arm. Each time the clock strikes, the hunter lifts its arm with the rifle and aims at the little bird in the rafters. Luckily, he will never bring him down...
Additionally, the mill wheel turns when the clock strikes.
This clock has a very elaborate decoration, with a pile of wood, many trees, a wayside cross, a benche, a doghouse; altogether, a very convincing forest scene is displayed on the clock. All figurines and decorative elements are made of wood.
Another eye-catcher is the thatched roof. It is fashioned after the real Black Forest farm house roofs, unevenly thatched by hand.
Dancing figurines made of wood, wooden dial, hands, cuckoo, pendulum.
