Original Black Forest Cuckoo Clock Kiew. Design: Geissenpeter, VDS winner clock 2009, Made in Germany. 8-day clockwork
The Cuckoo Clock model Kiew is an original Black Forest Cuckoo Clock of the world famous premium brand August Schwer with VDS Certificate, Made in Germany.
This is the official Clock of the Year 2009, certified by the Association of Black Forest Clock (VdS).
This XL cuckoo clock presents every detail, which stands for the uniqueness of a traditional Black Forest Farm house. The focus with this clock is on specific traditional occupations on a Black Forest farm. The large figurine on the cuckoo clock shows a farmer, leaning on his scythe, taking a break from the hay harvest. Right next to him, the almost full hay cart shows he's almost done with his day's work. A bit further on, in front of the small chapel, stands a little shingle rack. This is a special kind of work bench to produce roof shingles. (Unfortunately, this feature is hard to see on the fotos). During the hard winter season, when there was no work in the field, the farmers often cut shingles to earn some money.
A very prominent feature of this cuckoo clock is the construction of the clock itself. Unlike other clock models, this clock has individual outhouses, realised as complete buildings themselves. Usually, these annexes are only hinted at by attaching a little shed to the side of a clock. In this case, the chapel to the right and the storage shed to the left are complete little buildings. Thus an entire Black Forest farm ensemble, with a main farmhouse, annexes, and surroundings, is shown in one impressive clock.
Many Black Forest farm houses had their own chapel, because the way to the next village church was too far or often impassable during the winter snows. The name of the clock comes from the little boy figurine to the left of the clock, in front of the little shed. He is carrying a little goat...
The clock house itself represents the specific building techniques of the Black Forest. A typical shingle roof, timber frame building. Black Forest farm steads are often isolated buildings spread thin over the hilly countryside. A characteristic of such a farm house is the bell tower with the fire bell on the roof. In the case of an emergency, help could be called with these bells. In integral part of farm life are the animals; this clock shows various household animals like a cat and a German Shepherd dog, but also typical farm animals like the cow.
