This Cuckoo Clock has a shingled roof and red gable. The case is stained in walnut. The front of the house has Marie setting the table, and her husband is entertaining her with the accordion. The cuckoo door opens on the hour and the cuckoo firsts “tweets”, followed by its call which Echoes, telling the number of the hour. Afterwards one of the 12 alternating melodies are played and the platform of dancers rotate. On the side you will find a switch to turn off the music separately, or both the cuckoo and the music. Through a light sensor the clock is automatically quiet after dark, although the clock keeps running. This clock is run by a quartz battery clockwork that runs on three 1,5V batteries – Size C (not included).
