Fernand Martin "le Pochard" Mechanical Tin Toy From 1899 For Sale

Fernand Martin

A Fernand Martin (France) clockwork automaton, "Le Pochard" (the drunkard) from 1899.
This is a scarce early toy figure of a drunkard, with painted face, grey top hat, still with original bottle marked "Article Francais" and cup, with permanent key, black metal feet, check trousers and plain tunic (very tatty and stained). When working the figure could be made to walk with a stagger and periodically take a drink. However, the mechanism is not currently functioning and so the toy is sold as is.References:
