The leaves and bird are hand carved from solid Linden wood. When the cuckoo clock reaches the hour the door opens, a cuckoo appears and calls along with the clocks gong strike. After the cuckoo is finished a Swiss made music box movement plays one of two delightful melodies.
This musical cuckoo clock is hand made in Germany. The mechanical brass movements are driven by three weights and time escapes with the tick of a traditional pendulum. The cuckoo call sound is made by two mechanized wooden whistles with bellows inside the clock case.
