19th C Key Wind French Bisque Walking Doll & Box
You are viewing an antique French Bisque Automaton Doll with its original paper covered wood box. She is 11" tall, including the white wig. There are no marker's marks on the paper applique` box. The silk dress is original and in nice condition. The doll has no chips, cracks or hairlines to the bisque. I did notice there is a mis-painted eyelash. Her arms are composition and are adjustable. Using the original key, I gave the clock works spring about four turns and the 19th century doll started to walk. Her left tin toleware shoe does have an old solder repair(see photo)and the back where the cardboard has been attached has been re-glued. (see photo)
