This Aesop's Fable themed styled German cuckoo clock features wooden hands, a wood dial with Roman numerals, and a warm light yellow hand-painted and hand-carved cuckoo bird. The cuckoo clock case features many hand-carved maple leaves, grapes, a fox beneath the dial, and a bird sitting at the peak of the clock roof. Three cast iron pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by three separate brass chains.
The hand-carved & hand-painted 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 maple leaf up or down the pendulum stick. Sliding the maple leaf pendulum down causes the cuckoo clock to run slightly slower, while sliding the maple leaf up makes the cuckoo clock run slightly faster.
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.
The eight day mechanical Regula movement, which is produced in the Black Forest of Germany, is wound once per week by raising the two pine cone weights. One weight powers the time, and the other weight powers the cuckoo and cuckoo call.
Great effort has been made to portray each cuckoo clock as accurately as possible. As with many handmade items, the exact coloration and carving may vary slightly from clock to clock. We consider this to be a special part of their character. This clock is covered by a two year limited warranty covering workmanship and manufacturers defects.
