This model is part of a very limited group of automaton clocks representing a dromedary. The first mechanical clocks appeared at the beginning of the 14th century, first conceived as monumental clocks for belfries or bell towers. An ingenious production of automaton clocks then developed in Nuremberg from 1525. Among the best master clockmakers, Hans Bullman made beautiful pieces in 1535 commissioned for Vienna by the Emperor Ferdinand. Whilst in Augsbourg, the most prosperous period for clock making stretched from 1550 to 1600, which counted eighty-one master clockmakers. The creation of cases and figures however was beyond the competence of clockmakers who often called upon bronze sculptors, cabinetmakers and gold or silversmiths.
