Vtg Antique Automata Automaton Window Store Art Display Mechanical Girl Doll Toy
I BELIEVE THIS AUTOMATON WAS FROM A MACY’S DEPARTMENT STORE WINDOW DISPLAY. HER RIGHT HAND HOLDS TWO GOLD EARRINGS AND IT MOVES UP AND DOWN WHEN YOU PLUG IT IT. THE ELECTRIC CORD HAS SOME CRACKING DUE TO AGE. THERE IS AN INSPECTION STICKER DATED 1962 SO I BELIEVE THAT IS WHEN IT WAS MADE. HER LEFT ARM HAS BROKEN OFF AND I HAVE NOT TRIED TO MEND IT. IT LOOKS LIKE A SIMPLE REPAIR WITH THE PROPER EPOXY GLUE. I BELIEVE A PLASTIC EPOXY GLUE WOULD HOLD WELL. THIS WOULD MAKE A GREAT RESTORATION PROJECT AND WOULD DISPLAY WELL AFTER THE ARM IS REPAIRED. DUE TO AGE IT WILL NEED SOME GENTLE CLEANING. THE BROKEN ARM IS FIXED AND NOT MECHANICAL LIKE HER RIGHT ARM. THE MECHANICAL ARM GOES UP AND DOWN AND IT STOPS AND STARTS AT RANDOM TIMES. THERE IS A SMALL MECHANICAL WHEEL (SYNCHRON CLOCK MOTOR) THAT TURNS THAT STARTS AND STOPS THE MECHANICAL LIFT ARM THAT GOES UP AND DOWN. I THINK SHE LOOKS LIKE A FORTUNE TELLER HOLDING THE GOLD EARRINGS IN HERE HAND. THE EARRINGS ARE REAL, THEY ARE CLIP-ON AND THEY ARE VINTAGE COSTUME JEWELRY. THERE WAS A VINTAGE BEAD NECKLACE THAT BROKE AND SOME OF THE PLASTIC BEADS ARE MISSING. WE WILL INCLUDE THE NECKLACE IN CASE YOU WANT TO REPAIR AND ADD TO THE DISPLAY. THIS HAS A WOOD BASE THAT STANDS ABOUT 12 TALL. THE SITTING WOMAN IS ABOUT 26 TALL. THE WOOD BASE IS ABOUT 14 IN DIAMETER. THE DISPLAY WEIGHS ABOUT 16 POUNDS. THE ENTIRE DISPLAY IS ABOUT 37 1/2 TALL. IT WILL BE FULLY INSURED IN CASE THE POST OFFICE DOES NOT HANDLE THE PACKAGE PROPERLY. THE WOOD BASE HAS A PAINTED WOOD TWIG MATERIAL THAT WRAPS AROUND IT HIDING THE MECHANICAL ELECTRIC MOTORS. THERE IS AN INSPECTION TAG THAT READS THAT IT WAS PRODUCED BY THE ART MFG. I BELIEVE THIS WAS MADE IN THE USA BUT NOT SURE. THE SHOES AND CLOTHING ARE WORN AND TATTERED AS EXPECTED FOR THE AGE OF THIS DISPLAY. I SEE A SMALL CHIP IN THE BISQUE UNDER THE SCARF ON THE NECK THAT I POINT OUT IN THE PHOTOS. I ALSO SEE A SMALL CRACK IN THE ELBOW OF THE BROKEN ARM THAT WILL NEED JUST A LITTLE GLUE TO REPAIR. I WILL SPEND WELL OVER AN HOUR PACKAGING THIS SO PLEASE PLAN ON SPENDING SOME TIME GENTLY REMOVING THE PROTECTIVE BUBBLE WRAP WHEN YOU RECEIVE IT. THIS DOES NOT PLAY ANY MUSIC. I DO NOT BELIEVE IT WAS DESIGNED TO PLAY MUSIC. PLEASE SEE PHOTOS CLOSELY, WE DON’T WANT YOU TO GET SOMETHING YOU WON’T ENJOY. WILL INCLUDE SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION. PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS. WE WORK DURING THE DAY SO WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO GET BACK TO YOUR QUESTIONS UNTIL EVENING.
