This is a very large and luxuriously equipped cuckoo clock. The clocks represents a Black Forest Farming Estate in all its detail and diversity. Many aspects of such a farm are included in the design of this clock.
For one thing the shape of the building/clock itself is taken from old Black Forest farmsteads. Those were build by generations of farmers and consist of a main building and various annexes at every angle. Just like those, the clock house has side buildings. A mill-wheel is another typical feature of a Black Forest farm. Used as a power generator for sawing wood or grinding corn, many such wheels can still be seen today.
A nice touch of clock history is added to the clock by the clock seller figurine to the left. During the long winters many Black Forest farmers had lots of spare time and they used it to carve and build clock, which were sold during the summer month by just such clock sellers as the one on the clock. These carring the clocks on their back and sold them all over Germany and the adjoining countries. This is actually how the clock industry started here in the Black Forest.
This clock has a very elaborate decoration, with two figurines, various animal figurines and many smaller elements; altogether, a very convincing farming estate scene is displayed on the clock. All figurines and decorative elements are made of wood.
Another eye-catcher is the shingle roof. It is fashioned after the real Black Forest farm house roofs, laid with individual shingles by hand.
Dancing figurines made of wood, wooden dial, hands, cuckoo, pendulum.
