This charming and inexpensive cuckoo clock plays music. The leaves and bird are hand carved from solid Linden wood. When the clock strikes the hour or half-hour the door opens, a cuckoo appears and calls along with the clock’s gong strike. After the cuckoo is finished a Swiss made music box movement plays one of two tunes.
This clock is hand made in Germany and is distributed by North Coast Imports. The mechanical brass movements are driven by three weights and time escapes with the tick of a traditional pendulum. The cuckoo call sound is made by two mechanized wooden whistles with bellows inside the clock case.
Even the packaging has an old-world charm, as only paper is used. The factory packing is all made with renewable materials. This clock makes a great gift for the young and old alike.
For a larger version of this clock with more detailed carvings and animated dancing figurines, see model 1330.
