The 1-day-movement carved-style 21cm cuckoo clock by Hekas does not play music but the cuckoo bird calls every half and ever full hour. The cuckoo bird and the pendulum are visibly moving parts on this cuckoo clock.
Enjoy the details of this finely carved style clock. This cuckoo clock is entirely hand carved and offers precision detail that showcases the amount of work and artistic ability that goes into each clock. The clock resembles a non-chalet style house with a pitched roof and carvings of crosses, leaves and a bird. Traditional pine cone weights are an important mechanism of the clock and are also decorative and stylish. The cuckoo bird lets out a significant chirping cuckoo promptly throughout the day.
