With its old world charm mixed with accurate timekeeping, the River City Clocks MD885-20 Flowers with Vines & Billy Goat Musical Cuckoo Clock makes a charming accent for most decor styles. This hand-carved eight-day cuckoo clock features vines, flowers, and a billy goat on the peak of the roof. At the top of every hour the dancers revolve, and the clock plays one of two different twenty-eight note melodies, Edelweiss and the Happy Wanderer. 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 and the music. Pulling the lever down allows the music and cuckoo to play. The eight-day regular movement is wound once per eight days by raising the three pine cone weights. One weight powers the time, one weight powers the Swiss music box, and the other weight powers the cuckoo bird and cuckoo call, the band, and waterwheel.
