This traditionally 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 is surrounded by many deeply carved maple leaves with a single hand-carved bird seated at the peak of the roof. Hand-painted flowers are painted on to the maple leaves. At the top of every hour, the the birds on each side of the clock dial bob up and down to feed their bird nest. Two cast iron pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by two separate brass chains. The hand-carved & hand-painted maple leaf 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 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 Regula movement, which is made in 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. Please see the River City Clocks Warranty Page for more information about the warranty.
