Offered is this EXCEPTIONAL 13" French Mechanical Toy "Milkmaid Bringing Home the Cow" by Gustav Vichy in all original condition.
On the platform is a perfect, finely painted and beautifully costumed French bisque doll wearing her original Normandy milkmaid costume and skin wig. She has a carton torso, wire legs and upper arms and perfect bisque forearms.
Her metal platform with three spoked wheels also features a hide-covered brown cow with brown glass inset eyes, horns, udders, carved wooden feet, a leather collar with brass bell, and a bellows mechanism in its neck. The cow appears to be feeding from a metal stanchion filled with hay and paper flowers and there is a wooden milk pail at her side.
When wound, the girl turns her head from side to side, waves arms up and down, and the platform moves along and around on its metal wheeled base.
Condition: Excellent! Bisque has no damage, original costume in great condition, all extras included, mechanism works well. Cow has one surface crack over right eye.
Layaway of up to six months available for this item if needed. Prices are firm on layaways.
