This hand carved, Rombach & Haas, House Cuckoo Clock has animated feeding birds.
When the cuckoo clock strikes the hour or half-hour, the door opens, a cuckoo appears and calls along with the clock's gong strike. At the same time, the two birds in front move to feed their baby chicks.
This cuckoo clock is hand made in the Black Forest in Germany. 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.
