Chalet Style One Day Cuckoo Clock with Chimney Sweeper #22-09P
This one day chalet style German cuckoo clock features wooden hands, a wood dial with Roman numerals, and a warm light yellow hand-painted and hand-carved cuckoo bird. The cuckoo clock case features a chimney sweeper sitting at on top of the chimney with a hand-carved tree and water pump at the base of the clock. On the top of every hour the chimney sweeper rises up and down in and out of the chimney while the cuckoo bird cuckoos. There are also hand-painted flowers on the pendulum and on the base of the clock case. Two cast iron pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by two separate brass chains.
The hand-carved and hand-painted pendulum continously swings back and forth which controls the timing of the clock. If your cuckoo clock's timing should ever need adjustment, you can control the speed of your clock by sliding the shield up or down the pendulum stick. Sliding the shield down causes the cuckoo clock to run slightly slower, while sliding the shield up makes the cuckoo clock run slightly faster.
On every hour the cuckoo bird emerges from a swinging door above the clock dial and counts the hour by cuckooing once per hour. (Example: At one o'clock the bird will cuckoo once. At eight o'clock the bird will cuckoo eight times) The half hour is announced with one cuckoo call. The 30 hour all brass mechanical Regula movement, which is produced in the Black Forest of Germany, is wound once per day by raising the two pine cone weights. One weight powers the time and the other weight powers the cuckoo and cuckoo call.
*Great effort has been made to portray each cuckoo clock as accurately as possible. As with many handmade items, the exact coloration and carving may vary slightly from clock to clock. We consider this to be a special part of their character. This clock is covered by a two year limited warranty covering workmanship and manufacturers defects.
