Coo Coo (Cuckoo) Clock

An old wall clock at my father-in-law's basement.  I believe this  makes  bird sound "Coo Coo" and the bird comes out. It's not working now though, somebody busted it.


 "Ones reputation is like a shadow, it is gigantic when it precedes you, 
and a pigmy in proportion when it follows."

Charles Maurice de Talleyrand

  6. Beautiful clock and shadow too. I think I would have to take it to be repaired. It is too pretty to be stuck in the basement.

  7. Cuckoo clocks always remind me of fascinating little jewellery shops in Europe - or as I imagine that they are. The clocks ticking on the wall and jewellery under close! Lovely clock!

    And thank you so much for the shadow quote!
