Dress up your dining space with the charming classic appeal of the River City Clocks 806-12 Carved Deer, Dog, and Beer Drinker Drinking Beer Chalet Cuckoo Clock - 12H in. This chalet style German cuckoo clock features wooden hands, a wood dial with Roman numerals, and a warm light yellow hand-painted and hand-carved cuckoo bird. Every hour when the clock cuckoos, the beer drinker raises and lowers his mug. Two cast iron pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by two separate brass chains. The hand-carved shield 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 movement, which is made in Germany, will run for eight days. It is wound once per eight days 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 shield up or down the pendulum stick. Sliding the shield down causes the cuckoo clock to run slightly slower, while sliding the maple leaf up makes the cuckoo clock run slightly faster.
