Automaton Jean FARKAS the magician 1950

Beautiful music automaton by Jean FARKAS around 1950
This French-made toy is in perfect condition, entirely original.
Terracotta head, clothes of great finesse and very fine workmanship.
He moves his head and of course his arms, which reveal various changing objects on the table.
The mechanism works very well but the spring is very weak, so it is necessary to force a little on the key to make it work. This is probably what explains its absolutely new condition.
For an exhibition in the window or in decoration the object is ideal, but if the buyer wants a perfect functioning it will be necessary to change the spring.
50cm in height. The rarest of Farkas automata
