It is unknown who invented the cuckoo clock or even where the first one was made but it is thought that much of the development and evolution of the idea was made in the Black Forest area in southwestern Germany, the region where the cuckoo clock was popularised.
Today, the cuckoo clock is one of the favourite souvenirs of travellers to the region andhas become a cultural icon of Germany. We think they're fabulous and so have brought a couple to the Brown and Ginger range, we hope you like them!
This cuckoo clock has a dark gothic feel to it, coupled with a majestic stag's head at the top and is flanked by bird sentries.
The acorn-esque drop downs, stag's head and detailed outer frame of the clock have been made from lightweight matte black plastic whilst the main frame of the cuckoo clock is crafted from wood with a silky black finish.
The white detailing of the cuckoo, clock face and hands stands out well against the black and will surely be a beloved piece within your home.
Here at Brown and Ginger we promise to do our best to have a positive impact on our environment, we've switched to paper tape which is not only easier for you to open (no scissors required!) but it's easier on the environment. We also use 100% starch packing chips which simply melt away under water and FSC certified voidfill paper.
Only where absolutely neccessary do we use plastic packaging which has been re-used from other packaging, come with the product from the factory or, when shipping mirrors or particularly delicate items, to provide the extra protection to stop the items breaking in transit.
We have also recently made the switch to eco bubble wrap for those items where we want to make extra sure it gets to you safely. This is green and can be recycled with your other plastic.
We're working with our suppliers to reduce their use of plastic and will always do our best to ensure we're being as ethical as possible in all of our practices.
