The traditionally styled River City Clocks Five Maple Leaves & One Bird Cuckoo Clock will make a charming addition to any home with a classic decor. It 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 is surrounded by five deeply carved maple leaves with a single hand-carved bird seated at the peak of the roof. Two cast iron pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by two separate brass chains. The hand-carved maple leaf pendulum, which continuously swings back and forth, controls 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 every hour. The half hour is announced with one cuckoo call. The cuckoo sound cannot be turned off. The 30-hour all brass mechanical regular movement, which is produced in the Black Forest of Germany, is wound once per day 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.
