This German cuckoo clock features a deer feeding in front of a beautiful cottage. On the top of every hour the cuckoo clock cuckoos. (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 also a manual night shut off switch that allows you to mute the cuckoo sound. Two cast iron pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by two separate brass chains. The hand-made pendulum continously swings back and forth controlling the timing of the clock. The 30 hour all brass mechanical Regula movement 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.
