This exquisitely crafted one day, musical cuckoo clock has the classic Swiss chalet construction. It's overall design is inspired by the classic Swiss children's tales - "Heidi". On the clock Heidi stands to the left of the scene carrying a walking stick in one hand and an wonderfully detailed bag in the other. On the other side of the clock, off to the right, is a curious goat standing in front of a thick, bushy, verdant pine tree.

This model features four rosy-cheeked musicians from the Appenzell region of Switzerland, clothed in traditional costumes and playing traditional instruments. Once the cuckoo bird calls out the hour, one of two delightful tunes plays alternately: Edelweiss and the Happy Wanderer, while the dancers under the eaves of the roof begin waltzing across the balcony and the musicians sway in time with the music.

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 and the music. Pulling the lever down enables the cuckoo clock to play the music and cuckoo call.

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 controlling 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.

Powered by a 24 hour all brass mechanical "Regula" movement, this clock is wound quickly and easily once per day 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 musicians, the cuckoo and cuckoo call.

This clock is 13 inches in height and 12 inches across as you look at it. As such this fits into our "medium" 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 three year limited warranty covering workmanship and manufacturers defects.
