This clock is very similar to a clock by Pierre Jaquet-Droz, which was made in 1784 for Franz Victor Effinger. This clock, which is now on display at Schloss Wildenstein in Veltheim, has an almost identical case and differs mainly in its paintwork and in that the carillon is replaced by a pipe musical mechanism. Clocks with such a design were produced for the Turkish market, 2 similar ones are now in the Sultan's Palace in Istanbul.
