The characteristic feature of the presented clock is the unusual carved wooden and polychrome casing in the shape of a Hungarian hussar. The clockwork mechanism with a round clock face, made in Bochnia, was fitted into the torso of the figurine. The clockwork bears the watchmaker’s signature and the construction date: “Michał Zabydrowic/ in Bochnia/ 1791”.
A lot of attention was given to rendering the elements of the characteristic hussar outfit in detail: a fur-lined jacket (mentyk) decorated with sewn on braids made from a decorative cord (szamerunek), tight breeches with decorations in a similar style, high boots and a bearskin (bermyca).
