Circa 1890 musical automaton manufactured by Gustave Vichy. Seated upon a wooden bench stands a clown with a paper mache head with beautiful facial expression with glass eyes, closed mouth with painted teeth, brown hair wig, carton torso, bisque arms and legs, wearing striped silk costume and on his waistcoat, has an ornament with the shape of a dragonfly, black shoes, and a top hat on his head (the top hat is fixed on the wig with a hair clip). In his left hand, he holds a tambourine and in his right hand he holds a mask. When wound, music plays and the movements begin: he turns his head from side-to-side, raises his right hand holding the mask to eye level, raises the left hand to play the tambourine and moves his legs. A spring-driven clockwork movement is hidden within his bench. The movement is stamped G. Vichy Paris and it has its original key. Dimensions: wooden bench approximately 6.7 inches (17cm) wide and 9.4 inches (24cm) height. Total height approximately 21.3 inches (54 cm). Thanks for your interest. Video will open in a new window.
