拍品描述
With bisque head impressed "Eden Bébé, Paris, 12, Déposé", open mouth with inset upper teeth, fixed blue paperweight eyes, pierced ears, antique curly blonde mohair wig on cork pate, papier-mâché hands holding miniature theater with original gold satin curtains, the other resting on basket with articulated lid, the three-air going-barrel movement contained in the torso, dressed in original drop-waist couturier costume of burgundy silk-satin with ruched back, bead decoration, chenille-trimmed collar and (later) matching bonnet, ht. 29 in. (75 cm ), with brass 'acorn' stop/start and steel key stamped "G.V.", minor wig pulls, slight rub on nose and right eyebrow, hands repainted. – Provenance: ex-collection of the Mary Merritt Doll Museum, Pennsylvania. – Included in the lot is a 1973 postcard of the automaton in the museum. – A similar model was advertised in the 1884 catalog of the department store Au Louvre at the then astounding price of 290 Francs, almost ten times the cost of a luxury doll and twenty times as expensive as a manivelle toy of the period! – The figure looks from side to side and lifts her right arm to throw kisses as the basket lid opens, apparently unassisted, to reveal a black-and-white kitten waving its paw. She then nods her head to the right as the theater curtain raises to disclose a miniature acrobat turning circles upon a trapeze. Good working order. – A wonderful Vichy automaton with magical props that take on a life of their own!
