Figure machine from the 2nd quarter of the 19th century.
Movement: Wood-spindled cleats with internal steel armature. Works arranged one behind the other (walking, hour striking). Steel traps. Weight drive via wooden nuts. Strike the bell. Long pendulum with brass disc.
Shield: Slightly arched fir wood shield with a round arch. Dial with Roman hours and Arabic quarter hours. The dial is framed with a red curtain and a garland of leaves. A slaughterhouse is shown in the arch. In the gate opening a butcher with a butcher's ax and a beef. When the hour strikes, the butcher hits the beef that falls over with the last strike. Five minutes before the next hour, the calf rises again, only to fall over again after the hour has struck. The shield is younger than the clock.
