Here is a great Automaton of a Gypsy doll.. she comes to you in what looks like her original clothing...and her hoop earrings.... she has a wonderful face and she has the most detailed bisque hands... just gorgeous... she raises her arms and moves her body from side to side....I think she will need some adjusting as she appears to lean backwards...I do NOT have the key.. but I am trying to locate it... I have seen her move.. The doll is on a stand and she is 24 1/2" tall, she is a nice size... she is just gorgeous and I am selling her without the key and with her leaning back... IF I locate the key, I will send it on... She has such a sweet face. The bisque head is marked SH Germany. She has a mechanism in her head that will move her eyes from side to side, I am not certain how it works but when you touch it with your finger it will move the eyes from side to side. She is just gorgeous. She has the place for the key and when you pull out the little brass lever she moves... but she needs a key....I was advised by another Rubylaner... that this Gypsy automaton was made in France by Decamps. This model is supposed to lean backwards. She's sometimes seen holding a fan, a tambourine, a scarf, castanets, or a
garland. She also has a breathing movement. She's usually costumed as an oriental type. In one instance, she holds a large fan behind her head with both hands and snaps it open and closed.
