I like the modern take on a traditional object. that's why in my house I have a white plastic one.
I found this in a flea market for 10 euros and I quickly snapped it up for my sister who was looking for a "real" one. It does work ,the cuckoo really comes out of his little door every half and whole hour ! It's an authentic,made in Germany, all it needs is a little TLC and some patience to get all the mecanic synchronised!!
