French Military Bugler Mechanical Doll the doll is almost 9 ½ inches tall with a solid dome bisque socket head marked with a 5 on the back of the head. The head is German but the doll was for the French market. The doll has a beautiful face with rosy cheeks there is a very small line where the cheek color is a little lighter and blue painted eyes, original white wig attached to the original red cap. The doll has a mechanism that you press on the chest and the head, and both arms move so it looks like he is playing the original bugle. The arms and legs are both wood and the clothing is all original, a bit faded from age. There are no chips, cracks or hairlines. This is a very rare mechanical doll and a rare subject.
