Shop For German, Musical & Wooden Cuckoo Clocks
For decades, cuckoo clocks and musical cuckoo clocks have displayed carvings of elaborate themes such as birdhouses, villa's, hobbies or holidays.
Cuckoo clocks are weight driven by pine or spruce cone shape at the end of a chain or quartz battery powered.
Cuckoo clocks have been made in Germany since 1750, when Franz Anton Ketterer of the Black Forest villiage of Schonwald managed to reproduce the cuckoo bird's song with the clever use of bellows producing two different notes. In the following century, the Black Forest cuckoo clock industry developed rapidly. Inventive, dexterous craftsman spent the long, harsh winter months making cuckoo clocks with beautiful hand-carved decorations of various woods.
They were so successful that today when Black Forest is mentioned, people automatically associate cuckoo clocks with the region. The production process still involves folks working at home producing the cases, carvings and various other elements that all get sent to a "factory" for final assembly and shipping. The cuckoo clock cases are made of select linden, pine and spruce woods from the Black Forest. The woods are dried for several years before experienced master carvers handcraft the cases and frames. Each cuckoo clock is tested for several days before shipment to ensure customers only recieve products that are the "Best of the Black Forest".
All cuckoo clocks come with free shipping!
