Video footage of magician clock by Robert-Houdin

Here is some footage of a clock with an automaton attributed to the great clock-maker and magician, Robert-Houdin (not to be confused with Houdini). The clock depicts a magician performing a cup routine in which different objects appear and disappear below the cups. I am not sure how many of these exist in the world, but at least one makes its home in David Copperfield's Museum of Magic.
