A tin plate clockwork cockerel with red and green feathers. It is pulling a red, egg-shaped cart which is supported on two red spoked wheels. On top of the egg is a hare sitting on its hind legs with its front paws raised. On its back is an open red and yellow container. Two long black handles attach the egg-shaped cart to the cockerel. A key (attached to the clockwork mechanism both inside and underneath the cart) protrudes from the left side of the egg as you are looking at it from the front.
