Phalibois Wolf Automaton

Phalibois Wolf Automaton, a fanciful dressed wolf lady at her dressing table ladden with jewels and make up, the clockwork imparting a series of motions starting with her right hand and arm that raises a powder puff toward her face with a few rapid tap-tap motions, the head then turns to look into the hand mirror being raised by the left arm. All under the maker's typical arch with silk flora, wood base, and glass dome, 23" h., 19" w.

Condition:Some melting to silk on skirt and sleeves, but otherwise a noteably clean example, lower jaw needs small repair, otherwise motions appear to function properly, key is incorrect and does not quite fit properly.

Estimate: $4,000 - $6,000
