Pierrot on the Moon Automaton. Paris: Lambert, ca. 1890. The delicately dressed and hand painted Pierrot figure sits at the tip of an anthropomorphized crescent moon. As the mechanism works, the clown plays the instrument in his hands, turns his head, and sticks out his tongue, as the moon opens his mouth and moves his eye. Finely crafted from papier mache, with glass eyes, hand painted composition face on Pierrot, and original velvet-like costume. Height 20 ½”. Later key. With a custom-made vitrine for display. Good working condition. VIEW VIDEO
