Product information "Cuckoo Clock – Bell Ringer / 8d"
Another shingle-style clock with more inconspicuous traditional elements than seen at first glance. The clock shows a woman in traditional Black Forest dress with a red hat (the red hat lets us know that she’s unmarried – upon getting married, women in the Black Forest would begin wearing a black hat). The action of ringing a bell is a sounding call for farmers to come back from farms for the lunch.
