Tradition of the Cuckoo Clock

Anton Ketterer designed and built the first cuckoo clock in the village of Schönwald, Germany, in the Black Forest around 1730. Ketterer reproduced the cuckoo bird's song with tiny twin goatskin bellows that blew into two tiny flutes. Hand carved during the winter, the clocks were popularized in the summer by peddlers who carried the clocks across Europe on their backs.
