Auguste Jean Baptiste Lechesne is a French sculptor, winner of the second prize of Rome for sculpture in 1856. He specialized in naturalistic animal representations in which he quickly excelled. This clock is the testimony of the technical virtuosity with which the artist succeeded with great acuity in playing the fauna and the flora in an exuberance proper to the second half of the 19th century.
