Designed to make a big statement in any setting, the River City Clocks 809-16 Vines and Leaves Cuckoo Clock speaks volumes on your discerning taste. This German cuckoo clock features wooden hands, a wood dial with Roman numerals, and a warm light yellow hand-painted and hand-carved cuckoo bird. While the cuckoo clock case sports elaborately carved vines covered with leaves, its two cast iron pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by two separate brass chains. On every hour the cuckoo bird emerges from a swinging door above the clock dial and counts the hour by cuckooing once per hour. The half hour is announced with one cuckoo call. The hand-carved maple leaf pendulum continuously swings back and forth, controlling the timing of the clock. The regular eight-day 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.
