As impressive in function as it is in appearance, the River City Clocks MD464-14 Boy on Rocking Horse with Moving Waterwheel & Dancers Musical Cottage Cuckoo Clock makes a great choice for your living room, dining space, or rustic lodge. This hand-made German cuckoo clock features a boy on his rocking horse and a moving waterwheel. At the top of every hour and on the half hour, the boy rocks on his horse, the waterwheel turns, the dancers revolve, and the clock plays one of two different twenty-two note melodies, Edelweiss and the Happy Wanderer. The clock also includes an elegant sloping roof with shingles, hand-carved trees, and hand-made figurines.
Three cast iron pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by three separate brass chains. The hand-made 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. There is a sound shut-off device beneath the base of the cuckoo clock. Pushing the lever up disables the cuckoo birds cuckoo, the boy rocking, waterwheel, and the music. Pulling the lever down enables the boy on the rocking horse, the waterwheel to move and allows the music and cuckoo. The 30-hour mechanical regular movement is wound once per day by raising the three pine cone weights. One weight powers the time, one weight powers the music, and the other weight powers the cuckoo bird and cuckoo call, the boy on rocking horse, and waterwheel.
