This is a Monadnock pattern cuckoo clock from Klockit. I like the design because it is reminiscent of the traditional chalet so often seen in vintage cuckoo clocks The delicate scroll work around it enhances the design and made it very rewarding to do the scroll saw work. It is made from walnut grown near my home town which contributes to the special-ness of the gift. It is very three dimensional. While the clock is a quartz regulated electronic movement, the cuckoo sound is reproduced from a recording of the real cuckoo bird in the wild. I'm sure that this will be treasured for many generations, even if the clock fails! And it's clear that granddaughter got the "good looking" genes from someone else!
