The Farmers Chalet - limited edition Cuckoo clock
This very special, limited edition Loetscher Cuckoo clock depicts a classic Swiss farm scene. At the centre of it all, standing behind his wheelbarrow, is the busy but genial farmer. To the left of him is a chicken, sitting atop a little bridge that crosses a stream flowing from the chalet’s waterwheel which has finely detailed carving on the thatched roof.
To the right of our farmer is a robust-looking dairy cow, sporting a large bell around its neck, an important tool for farmers to locate a cow who’s wondered off while grazing in the Alpine meadows. Two decorative metallic cowbells, a common sight at Swiss farmhouses, adorn this chalet. As with all Loetscher cuckoo clocks, the flowers and boulders that bedeck the chalet come from Lake Brienz.
This picturesque pastoral scene has three moving elements: the dancers on the balcony, the water wheel and the pile of hay in front of the cow.
Figurines and Ornaments : The figurines are hand-carved and hand-painted.
A manual switch that allows you to turn off the music and cuckoo sounds without interrupting the clock movement.
Music : Every half hour
1 day rack-strike movement with a cuckoo call on the half and full hour.
Size : 34 x 43 cm (13 x 17 in)
