The service from Black Forest Gifts was very good. I purchased this online and had questions so I called. Spoke to Ken and he was very nice in answering questions. Shipping was very prompt and it arrived packed well and in perfect shape.
As far as the clock goes, it is very pretty. Beautiful hand painted detail however for an Anton Schneider, I would have expected a wood door for the cuckoo. It is plastic and did not state that in the description. It doesn’t really bother me that much. I already own a near vintage cuckoo clock that we purchased in the Black Forest in the 80’s. There really is no comparing the sound of a mechanical clock verses the quartz. The cuckoo on the quartz sounds like a submarine sonar and the melodies are prerecorded, not a real music box. But I knew this beforehand and wanted the convenience of a quartz in the particular room we planned to put it. I do enjoy the 12 melodies.
Overall I am very happy with this clock, but if you want an authentic sound, go with a mechanical cuckoo, not the quartz.
Again, happy with the service and would purchase from here again.

I had questions regarding this clock so I called the store and spoke with Ken. He was very polite and addressed my questions. The clock arrived within a few days of ordering. It was packed extremely well, no damage. Beautiful clock, I love looking at it! It is not exactly 14 inches however, more like 12-1/2”. Looks much better than the photo on line shows.
