Cuckoo Clock

I've always wondered where my old cuckoo clock went. A lovely ornamental Swiss style one, that didn't actually "cuckoo", but could have with a bit of clock doctoring.
Anyway, I decided to make a lino one.
The cuckoo clock brooch I made a few weeks ago found a home with a very nice person that blogs here. And she is part Swiss!So I used the same idea, but made it bigger with real working hands. And apart from the clock mechanism, this clock is made with totally recycled and pre-loved materials.
The bird in this clock doesn't "cuckoo" either, which is probably a good thing, as I'm sure it would drive every one mad.
This clock will be for sale, but not for a little while, although I am happy to take expressions of interest.
