This hand carved German cuckoo clock case is surrounded by four hand carved painted maple leaves with a single hand-carved bird positioned at the peak of the roof. On the hour, the two birds beside the clock dial move up and down, feeding the baby birds in the bird nest. Each maple leaf has a hand-painted flower on it. This classic styled German cuckoo clock features a warm yellow hand-painted and hand-carved cuckoo bird. Two weights made of cast iron pine cones hang beneath the clock case by two separate brass chains. The hand-carved painted maple leaf pendulum continuously swings back and forth controling 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 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 30 hour all brass mechanical Regula movement, which is produced in the Black Forest of Germany, is wound once per day 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.
