Automaton clock in the form of an Eagle, 1630, German, Augsburg

Case: gilded brass on a base of ebony and ebony veneered on fruit-wood; Movement: brass and iron. Automata have been associated with European mechanical clocks from their earliest development. The eagle, an emblem of the Hapsburgs, thus had special meaning for Augsburg clock makers. When the clock strikes the hour, the scepter moves, and at the quarters, the eagle opens and shuts its beak and rolls its eyes.
