This hand-carved, eight day, musical, German cuckoo clock features wooden hands, a wood dial with Roman numerals, and a warm light yellow hand-painted and hand-carved cuckoo bird. This cuckoo clock case features several hand-carved maple leaves, two birds on each side of the dial, one bird at the peak of the roof, and a bird nest with baby birds beneath the dial. At the top of every hour the dancers revolve on their platform at the top of every hour. This clock also plays music on the hour alternating between two different melodies: Edelweiss and The Happy Wanderer.

On every hour the cuckoo bird emerges from a swinging door above the clock dial and counts the hour by cuckooing once per hour (example: at one o'clock the bird will cuckoo once. At eight o'clock the bird will cuckoo eight times). The half hour is announced with one cuckoo call. There is a sound shut-off device beneath the base of the cuckoo clock. Pushing the lever up disables the cuckoo birds cuckoo, the dancers, and the music. Pulling the lever down enables the dancers to move and allows the music and cuckoo.  

Three cast iron pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by three separate brass chains. The hand-made pendulum continuously swings back and forth which controls the timing of the clock. If your cuckoo clock's timing should ever need adjustment, you can control the speed of your clock by sliding the pendulum up or down the pendulum stick. Sliding the pendulum weight down causes the cuckoo clock to run slightly slower, while sliding it up makes the cuckoo clock run slightly faster.

The 240 hour all brass mechanical "Regula" movement (which is produced in the Black Forest of Germany) is wound quickly and easily just once per week by simply pulling on the chains to raise the three pine cone weights. One weight powers the time, one powers the music box and the other weight powers the dancers, the cuckoo and cuckoo call.

This clock is 17 inches in height and 13 inches across as you look at it. As such this fits into our "large" size clock filter.

*Great effort has been made to portray each cuckoo clock as accurately as possible. However, as with any handmade item, the exact coloration and carving may vary slightly from clock-to-clock. We consider this to be a special part of their character and will make the one you purchase unique to you, and only you. This clock is covered by a two-year limited warranty covering workmanship and manufacturers defects.
