This delightful little 1-Day Chalet cuckoo clock has always been one of our most popular selections due to its bright colors and charming theme. Rich tones of light and dark stain highlight the delicately painted figurines that make up the scene. A Saint Bernard stands at attention before his doghouse on the far left of the cuckoo clock. A small wood pile placed directly and symmetrically beneath the cuckoo clock’s dial is perfectly balanced by the asymmetry of a small wooden water bucket set to its left.
Next comes the star of the show - a German lady in traditional Black Forest garb. The red balls on her hat signifies that she is single and eligible for marriage, black balls would indicate that she is already married. She rings a bell in time to the cuckoos. It produces no tone, but will move in time to the gong sound mimicking the noise of a real bell. A lone pine tree stands to her right which balances the design of the scene. Dark green shutters and a dark green cuckoo door match to the dark wood of the trim and serve to highlight the lighter wood of the clock case itself. This cuckoo clock also features a hand shingled roof and delicate gingerbread work framing the cuckoo door.
