Clown Magician Musical Automaton. Paris: Leopold Lambert, 1900s.

Cloth-covered wand and metal cup, the face painted with a dragonfly motif. Two-color mohair wig. Original costume showing wear, but good condition overall. 25″ tall, inclusive of wooden base (12 x 9 x 4 1/2″). Recreated Lambert key. Paint and fabric a bit worn.
