Black Forest Cuckoo Clock, Animated Feeding Quail, Model #1208
The leaves and bird are hand carved from solid Linden wood. When the clock strikes the hour or half-hour the door opens, a cuckoo appears and calls along with the clocks gong strike. At the same time, the two birds below move to feed the baby chicks in the nest.
This cuckoo clock is hand-made in the Black Forest in Germany by Romba and Haas. The mechanical brass movement is driven by two weights and time escapes with the tick of a traditional pendulum. The cuckoo call sound is made by two wooden whistles with bellows inside the clock case.
