Vintage Schatz Cuckoo Clock

Vintage Schatz Cuckoo ClockThe Schatz Clock Company aka Jahresuhrenfabrik from the Black Forest region of Triberg, Germany has a long and interesting history when it comes to making clocks. August Schatz and Anton Harder, founders of Schatz, worked together in the hope of making clocks that could accurately keep time with a minimum of winding or maintenance.

This 70-year-old hand-carved clock was made in the Black Forest region of Germany. The clock itself is handmade and the solid wood case is carved from aged Linden wood which exclusively grows in the Schwarzwald, Black Forest region.

It shows an intricately hand-carved bird perched on the very top and grape leaves on each side of the clock case. The hands and dial are hand-painted and also made of wood and you can see the original signature logo of the Schatz just above it.

The weights are made of cast iron with a pine cone shape and the wooden pendulum which is in the shape of a leaf, which is consistent with its design.

Cuckoo clocks can either have three or two weights. A clock with three weights is musical. Here’s an example of a clock with three weights: https://clockreviewed.com/authentic-german-cuckoo-clock-from-regula/

This clock measures about 12 1/2 inches in height (without the weights and pendulum) and 9 inches in width. It is a mechanical 8-day movement clock which means it keeps time for approximately one week and must be wound only once a week as compared to a 1-day movement clock that needs to be wound every 24 hours. Therefore, I find this clock more convenient.

What makes this clock different from other clocks is the history that attaches to it and the decorative classic or traditional look with intricate details and woodwork completes the mood and look of your home.
