Anton Schneider began producing cuckoo clocks in 1848 in his farmhouse in
Schonach. The Schneider family business is now in the 6th generation and
has been producing high value cuckoo clocks at its current location since
The Schneider clock factory is among the most modern and largest cuckoo clock
factories in the Black Forest. Inspite of this, the old tradition of performing
valuable carving work by hand has been maintained. A love of detail combined
with ancient handicraft skills are today the characteristics of the new
generation of high value cuckoo clocks.
The Schneider company employs highly qualified workers, most of whom have
worked for them for the last 20 to 40 years. Every worker is specialised
in the quality production of high value cuckoo clocks. This is emphasised
by their leading position in the production of cuckoo clocks with music and
dancing figurines as well as those with moving scenes and hand-carved figurines.
Prices: quartz (battery) from $315, single day mechanical (pull the chain
each day) from $395, 8 day mechanical (pull the chain every 8 days)
