Automaton referred in the Roullet-Decamps catalog with the number 25 :’danseuse’ (the dancer). It is an early model of the firm, period Jean Roullet, circa 1880. This automaton has the label of the famous shop’Maison Simonne’. This automaton works well : the right arm is moving and the head go from side to side. As indicated in the R & D catalog. Total height is 48 cm, as indicated in the R & D catalog. (a little less than 19). Very interesting bisque head – portrait like face – maybe Jumeau or Bru You can see on the pictures a classic original R & D key and the typical R & D on/off system. Only a very very small part of the original clothes is present (used socks, a part of the vest), these rich clothes were made many years ago. The wig is not original too like the velvet. Note that the pressed bisque head (unmarked) is free of hairline or restoration, the bisque arms are perfect too. =====> ask me for the video. Very beautiful with a display of fashion dolls. I make the parcel, certainly a wooden box. Feel free to ask me any question.
