Classic design and timeless charm work together to make the River City Clocks MD894-13 Man Chopping Wood and Moving Waterwheel Musical Cottage Cuckoo Clock an eye-catching complement to any space. This eight-day musical German Black Forest cuckoo clock features a man chopping wood in front of his cottage, surrounded by hand-carved trees and deer. At the top of every hour, the man chops his axe, the waterwheel turns, 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, whereas 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 woodchopper, waterwheel, and the music. Pulling the lever down enables the man chopping wood, the waterwheel to move and allows the music and cuckoo. 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.
