Item Description

Creepy clockwork musical automaton figure

Creepy comes to mind when you turn the clockwork mechanism and pull the start switch on this figure. As the tinny music plays, the arms of this figure move up and down, and the left arm twist 60% upwards. The ceramic dolls head which is stamped to the reverse moves from right to left, and back again. The motion is smooth and repeated until the clockwork mechanism winds down, about 5 minutes run time roughly. Stood on a purpose build wooden base the figure itself is constructed from a composite material of sorts with sections of mesh linen on the surface. The mechanism movement is visible from both the front and the rear.
