1 Day Musical Leaf & Bird Cuckoo Clocks
The following German Black Forest cuckoo clocks are of the one day musical variety. The one day, musical cuckoo clock must be wound daily and the music is provided by a Swiss music box inserted into the clock. After the call of cuckoo, normally one of two melodies will play. Melodies are normally Edelweiss and The Wanderer but are subject to change. We have no control over the music the manufacturers put into these fine cuckoo clocks. Each comes with a 2 year warranty unless otherwise indicated.
Cuckoo clocks are hand-carved, as they have been for generations, and no two clocks will be identical.
The carved leaf and bird cuckoo clock is that of a birdhouse with a crest that fits on the top in most cases. They may have hand-carved leaves, branches and birds of various types. The mechanical mechanism is powered by gravity. It has two weights made of cast iron, one of which drives the time and the other the cuckoo call. The weights hang on a hook at the end of a tarnish resistant chain. The chain runs up thru and over the drive gears which power the mechanism. A pendulum hangs below the clock and swings back and forth controlling the timing of the cuckoo clock. Please refer to the instructions for time corrections a cuckoo clock.
All cuckoo clocks are measured from the very top wooden part of the clock, to the very bottom part of the cuckoo clock and do not count the pendulum and weights.
