Whimsical and sometimes realistic animations such as this one were commonly reproduced mechanically in the Black Forest since the early Nineteenth Century. Here, a woman in traditional garb milks a cow. Meanwhile the people are above, on the balcony, dancing to the music.

This eight-day, musical cuckoo clock features a Swiss music box with an excellent sound. This eight-day musical cuckoo clock has a night time shut-off lever so you can turn off the music and cuckoo and leave the time-keeping function running.

The dial, hands, and numbers and bird are all of solid wood. The shingles on the roof are individually laid, and all the carvings are done by hand.

This “Milkmaid” cuckoo clock is by Sternreiter and is exclusively available through North Coast Imports. It is an Original Black Forest Clock, certified by the VDS.

The clock comes packaged in genuine recycled materials, each clock made and packaged BY HAND by Black Forest craftsmen the same way they have been for hundreds of years. The cuckoo bird, hands, numbers, and dancers are all made of solid wood. The bird and dancers move along with the mechanically produced music and cuckoo call.
