Busy Boy Alarm Clock which is possibly made from metal and painted a turquoise green colour.

Extended on one side of the figurines body is a metal tool to imitate an outstretched arm which looks to be hitting the bell. On the dial it has "JERGER, BUSY BOY, WEST—GERMANY" and beyond the dial the mechanics of the clock can be observed. At the bottom there are two gold coloured metal legs which hold the clock up. On the back of the clock there is a very small engraving of a lion and arrows pointing to the direction on how to wind up the clock and the place it was made "GERMANY".
