Combining stylistic cues from centuries-old clock making with modern design, this clock is a real treasure. It fits perfectly in a very traditional or very modern decor. This fine clock features an animated cuckoo bird which appears and calls the hour and half hour. The sound is mechanically created using wooden whistles and bellows.
Bamboo is a renewable resource. It has a very short growing cycle and doesnt need to be replanted. The yearly yield can be as much as 20 times traditional lumber, and it is one of the lightest and strongest natural building materials available. Bamboo has a beautiful and individualistic grain which is emphasized in this natural finish and accentuated in the models with different colors.
Planting bamboo reduces rain run-off and prevents soil erosion. It can also help control water pollution because of its high nitrogen contents.
This mechanical clock continues the green ethos by providing a system where the clock is powered only by the natural pull of gravity. There are no batteries to dispose of, or electrical power source to use.
Even the packaging has old-world charm, as only paper is used. The factory packing is made with recycled materials. This clock makes a great gift for the young and old alike. Perfect for modern or traditional decor!
