Station House cuckoo clocks are impressive by their very nature, and this cuckoo clock is no exception. The Station House style is the second oldest type of cuckoo clock which makes them quite unique. The construction of this cuckoo clock is very much like a piece of furniture, giving it the supreme benefit of being able to fit into almost any decorating scheme. Delicate ivy scroll work climbs around the exterior of the case, mimicking the curves and swirls of the real life plant. These carvings provide a perfect counter point to the straight lines of the rest of cuckoo clock’s architectural construction. The leaves continue along the top piece of the cuckoo clock emphasizing its long shape and serving to accentuate its size.
Small touches such as the finials that accent the bottom cross-bar add an element of elegant simplicity to an otherwise ornate clock case. The cuckoo clock’s most striking design feature is its use of blonde and dark wood in order to provide contrast that highlights the rest of its carvings. This makes it easy to match with a variety of furniture styles and colors. This cuckoo clock also features a large and easy to read clock dial with large hands and roman numerals.
