Various examples of this clock are known. Princess Maria Josepha gave one to her father, Elector Augustus II of Saxony, in 1721. The very three-dimensional figure group surmounting it was one of Johann Gottlieb Kirchner’s earliest works for Meissen. The group was also used on the goblet on view next to the clock.
