River City Cuckoo Clocks 16" Eight Day Musical Cuckoo Clock with Dancers - Moving Birds Feed Bird Nest Black Forest Cuckoo Clocks Bringing You The Best of the Black Forest Eight Day Musical Cuckoo Clock with Dancers - Moving Birds Feed Bird Nest This hand-carved eight day musical 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 clock case features six maple leaves and a bird at the peak of the roof. At the top of every hour the birds beneath the dial move up and down to feed the baby birds in the bird nest. The dancers revolve on their platform at the top of every hour. This clock also plays music on the hour alternating between two different melodies: Edelweiss & The Happy Wanderer. Three cast iron pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by three separate brass chains. The hand-carved maple leaf pendulum continously 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. There is a sound shut-off device beneath the base of the cuckoo clock. Pushing the lever up disables the cuckoo birds cuckoo and the music. Pulling the lever down enables the cuckoo clock to play the music and cuckoo call. The eight day all brass mechanical Regula movement, which is produced in the Black Forest of Germany, is wound once per eight days by raising the three pine cone weights. One weight powers the time, one weight powers the music and dancers, and the other weight powers the cuckoo bird 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.
