I am Bernd Fehrenbach, cuckoo clock carver from Schonach in the Black Forest of Germany and owner of Fehrenbach Black Forest Cuckoo Clocks and German Gifts at Peddler’s Village in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. My family has been making cuckoo clocks for five generations in the traditional methods of the Black Forest craftsmen.
This site will give you all of the information you need before you buy a cuckoo clock and what to do if the cuckoo clock you already have is not working properly.
Feel free to ask your cuckoo questions on any page of the site. If you need to show a picture, you can post to our Facebook page or find me on Twitter @GermanCuckoo. You can also add us to your circles on Google+
If you are looking for a monetary value on an older cuckoo clock, you would do best by contacting an antique dealer or an auction house as that is outside the scope of this website. However, one of the best features of a cuckoo is that they can last for decades or longer and be passed down over generations. This in turn puts a premium on only special or very old cuckoo clocks.
One of the most common questions we get in our store is “Where can I get my cuckoo clock repaired?” The best place to start is always with the manufacturer. If the clock origin cannot be determined, then a local clock repairman is often your best bet. But ask them first about their experience with cuckoo clocks! Hopefully your problem can be resolved here first.
If you would like to see our authentic Black Forest cuckoo clocks or other German Gifts we can be seen in our German Gift Shop or our online store. I will also be attending several German festivals around the U.S. in 2013 including Christkindlmarket Chicago. I look forward to forward to seeing you!
Thanks for stopping by,
