Hand-carved by a master craftsman in the Black Forest of Germany, this desktop cuckoo clock features a decorative chalet-style clock case in rich wood tones. In addition to the sloped roof, the windows have green shutters with heart-shaped cutouts and blooming flowers in the window boxes! Rich, hand-carved trees flank each side of the “house”, along with a welcoming bench and a friendly dog. The base of the clock is finished in a rich, dark brown stain.
The clock dial is made of a contrasting darker-stained brown wood, with light beige Roman numerals and ornate wooden clock hands.
Each hour on the hour, the cuckoo bird emerges from a swinging door to announce the time by cuckooing the hour (ex: one cuckoo for one o’clock; eight cuckoos for eight o’clock). Following the cuckoos, the clock plays one of 12 different melodies, alternating them each hour: 1. Happy Wanderer, 2. Edelweiss, 3. Dr. Zhivago, 4. Swan Lake, 5. He was beautiful (theme song of the movie “Deer Hunter“), 6. Lorelei, 7. Home Sweet Home, 8. Sound of Silence, 9. Clementine, 10. The Entertainer (theme song of the movie “Sting), 11. Love theme of the movie “The Godfather“, 12. Fur Elise. See AUDIO SOUNDS below for sample tunes.
