THIS IS QUITE AN OLD CLOCK THOUGH I AM NOT ENTIRELY SURE WHEN IT DATES TO BUT I WOULD SAY PROBABLY AROUND THE EARLY 20th CENTURY GOING BY THE OLD CLOCK MECHANISM AND BELLOWS BUT HOPEFULLY SOMEONE WHO KNOWS ABOUT CLOCKS MORE THAN I DO WILL BE ABLE TO DATE IT FROM ITS MANY LOVELY FEATURES. THE CUCKOO IS HAND CARVED AND ALSO HAND PAINTED AND IT HAS A LOVELY MELLOW SOUND WHEN THE CUCKOO POPS OUT EVERY HALF HOUR BUT THE DOOR CAN BE FASTENED SHOULD YOU WANT TO SWITCH IT OFF ALTOGETHER SO THAT IT DOESN'T DISTURB YOU DURING THE NIGHT. THERE IS A CARVED WOODEN PENDULUM THAT HAS A TIME REGULATOR ON THE BACK AND TWO VERY HEAVY METAL PINE CONE WEIGHTS THAT ATTACH TO THE CHAINS WHICH WIND UP THE CLOCK AND THE CUCKOO.

I BELIEVE IT IS AN 8 DAY MOVEMENT CLOCK THOUGH I CANNOT BE CERTAIN AS IT IS SUCH A LONG TIME SINCE I'VE SEEN IT ON THE WALL BUT PLEASE BARE IN MIND THAT IT MAY NEED SOME ADJUSTMENT AFTER ITS POSTAL JOURNEY. YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT IT IS ON A LEVEL WALL SURFACE AND IT MAY TAKE SOME TIME AND PATIENCE TO GET IT UP AND RUNNING PROPERLY AS IS ALWAYS THE CASE WITH THIS TYPE OF CLOCK.
