Antique German Clockwork Figure/moving Eyes Ultra Rare/mint:
This is incredible and quite RARE. It is a German clockwork nodder with moveable eyes. The gentleman that I purchased this from said that it was in his Grandparents store as a counter display at Christmas time; that this was Mrs. Claus; she sports all original clothing; no melting or issues with the garments; the face is beautifully rendered paper mache with a gesso wash; beautifully detailed with eyes that move to the nodding;wooly eyebrows; clockwork is in PERFECT running condition; she sits on a small wooden stool. She has sewing gear in her hands but the gentleman told me that she also held a small tree at one time. Measures an impressive 26" tall. She is MINT; exceptional and quite rare. I have more pictures if you need them; but I will bet you will be pleased with the purchase. I would date pre 1900. Packed professionally and I will ship worldwide. She has a reserve; I will gladly keep her if she doesn't meet the reserve. OUTSTANDING PIECE.
