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.

Antique French Bisque Automaton Seated Music Box Doll Sewing Plays Blue Danube


This is a beautiful, Antique, I believe around late 1800’s, French Bisque doll seated on a wood box covered with gold velvet which is atop a wood box covered in plum velvet. I found a photo of the marking that is on the back of her neck. The marking is of crossed shields with an S under them. S with two arrows doll mark ca. French automata doll maker unknown. The doll, measures about 11 in the seated position. Her music box plays Blue Danube. She is holding her embroidery in her left hand and the needle and thread in her right hand. She has a Bisque head, wrist & hands and feet to knees. The rest of the arms and upper legs are wire. She has inset brown glass eyes and a closed mouth. Her wig is Mohair. She is wearing a Silk, tatted lacy wide brim bonnet with black Velvet ribbon. Her Silk dress is trimmed with French lace and also some tatting at the bodice and skirt area. There is black Velvet ribbon trim around the sleeves, neck, button and down the front. There is also a tatted lace bow on the back. I apolgize if “Tatting” is not the correct term. This is a key-wound music box. I do not believe the key is removable. As the music plays, her head turns and her hands move up and down. The needle is old and rough and has come loose. It looks like it was glued to her right hand as there is some discoloration to the palm. I have placed some masking tape on the hand for the photos. There is also some thread in the needle and it probably is not the original thread as a previous owner may have added it. I have tried to capture her movements in my photos. The platform measures 8 1/2″ front to back x 6 3/4″ wide x 2 1/4 high. Thank you for visiting. I will try to answer any questions you have. Please make sure you keep all packaging, if item is received damaged. TRACKING IS ALWAYS PROVIDED.
