Taking a cue from Aesop's Fables, the River City Clocks 823-18 Aesop's Fable Themed Carvings with Fox, Bird and Grapevines Cuckoo Clock is perfect for complementing your classic decor. 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. The cuckoo clock case features many hand-carved maple leaves, grapes, a fox beneath the dial, and a bird sitting at the peak of the clock roof. Three cast iron pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by three separate brass chains. The hand-carved and hand-painted pendulum continuously swings back and forth, controlling the timing of the clock. 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-eight day mechanical regular movement, which is produced in the Black Forest of 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.
Please note: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.
