HerrZeit by Adolf Herr Cuckoo Clock - Happy Family

Item: AH 801/1 8TMT
8 day with music
A cuckoo clock with a typical Black Forest House with a hand-carved roof, a bell tower, a chimney and hand-painted Gentian and Sunflowers. The parents kiss in time to the cuckoo call, which is once on the half hour and on the full hour according to the time. Two alternating melodies - Edelweiss and Happy Wanderer - play every hour. Meanwhile the siblings rock happily on the see-saw and the water wheel turns. The figurines on the balcony, who are wearing the Black Forest costume, dance around to the music. The clock is personally signed at the back by the manufacturer Adolf Herr. His signature guarantees the experience of 7 generations of clock-workmanship. This clock comes with a certificate of authenticity (AHC).

Adolf Herr – Creator of Black Forest Clocks of long tradition
In 1730 Anton Ketterer built the first cuckoo clock. In the 1780´s Adolf Herr´s ancestor, Johann Hiller, already built clocks in the Black Forest. His son in law, Johann Baptist Rainer, born in 1763 continued the clock making tradition. His son in law, Christian Herr, born 1814 was clock maker, too. From then on, the clock making art was handed down from father to son. Bernhard Herr, born 1842, Robert Herr, born 1876, and Rudolf Herr, born 1901, established a family tradition in making fine clocks. Adolf Herr, Rudolf´s son, married to Gerlinde Eble, whose great-grandfather, and father had also been clockmakers, opened his own business in 1977 – the House of Black Forest Clocks. He, and his son Juergen (7th generation) has been creating cuckoo clocks in ever since, inventing new designs and, above all, new movements that have found a new place in many households in Germany and overseas.
