Here is a Gorgeous French Bisque Automaton... She has two keys...one for movement and the other for music. I dare not touch these.. but she moves her head from side to side and then bows.. She has glass eyes and a closed mouth and she is really sweet.. She does need some tinkering... as you have to hold the small key and turn slowly for the music but it is very clear...as for her movements.. her arms go up and down but her head could be working better, maybe tighter? the head is a normal socket head attached ...which makes me believe this is not the correct head as it has a round socket.. She is worthy of restoration.. The head is a closed mouth RD head that is not damaged and the head does work but it flops in the center....She is lovely and with some attention she could be wonderful.... So, if you are looking for a perfect Automaton...she is not for you.. if you are looking for a fancy French Bisque RD doll that can move and play music.. but needs some TLC..she is for you. The doll has old clothing and sits upon a box with the two key holes on the side. The doll stands 16 1/2" tall. She is has her eyes set with plaster as you can see from the pics... I am hoping she finds a good home..she is just beautiful when she is sitting there! I bought her because she is so pretty...and I loved her look. Please take a moment to view our other items.
