Description

Designed to recreate one of Aesop's fables, the River City Clocks MD823-18 Aesop's Fable Theme - Fox & Grapes Musical Cuckoo Clock brings visual appeal and old world charm to your space. This hand-carved eight-day musical cuckoo clock features hand-carved vines, a fox, grapes, and a bird. 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 to control 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.
