TALKING SKULL

Lot 0206
Papier mache skull with meticulously constructed clockwork mechanism inside that will apparently interact with the performer by clicking its jaw in answer to a series of questions. This appears to have several “programs” and routines that will vary depending upon the starting position of the mechanism. A simplified, yet equally baffling version of Joseffy’s famous “Balsamo” skull. Tested and working. Includes key. German. Circa 1930. Extremely rare.
