Offering this Rare Tiger with Clockwork Mechanism, performs by winding him with the large key, and then you pull out the button on his tummy, set him down and he softly growls while crouching down, growls again loudly and takes a big jump forward, lands, and repeats. He usually does this three times on a wind. His body is covered with realistic hide or skin with minor wear in places and he has large real looking teeth and nice glass eyes set in. He has wood carved feet. I have had him in my collection over 30 years, but may be time for another to enjoy his antics. He was made by Roullet & Decamps, a French Toy Manufacturer in the 19th Century.
