Antique German Black Forest Hand Carved Whistler Clock Work Automaton For Sale
A wonderful original antique hand carved and hand painted wooden German (or possibly Austrian) Black Forest whistling automaton which stands approximately 18" tall. The automaton has a clock work mechanism which is wound via a bird figural brass key on the back which causes the figures head to move side to side and to make a whistling sound. The lamp post has a light bulb in the top and the underside of the base has a place where a battery would of fit to light the lamp but the door cover has been lost (I think a rather easy fix). I would test the light bulb which appears to be the original but I can not figure out exactly how the battery or what type of battery would be situated in the base. A great item for the automaton or Black Forest item collector which is in great all original condition save for the loss of the battery compartment door on the underside of the base. Item is completely fresh to the market from an old local estate. TERMS & CONDITIONS:
