Rare 25 Inch Simon & Halbig Flirty Eyed Automaton With French Key Wound Walker

RARE 25 INCH SIMON & HALBIG FLIRTY EYED AUTOMATON/CLOCKWORK, KEY WOUND WALKER MOLD 1078. She is a rare flirty eyed Simon & Halbig mold 1078 with a difference. I had a slightly larger version of this doll a few years ago. They do not come up for sale in working condition often. She has a French clockwork mechanism inside her torso which when wound, moves her legs & she steps or walks, she also cries ma ma as her legs move.

I believe that the mechanism is by Roullet & Decamps. She has for the last few months been with an Automata specialist where the mechanism has been fully serviced so it is now fully working & is guaranteed for 2 years from the date of service. A copy of the service details showing the date & guarantee will come with her. She measures 25 inches long. She has a perfect bisque head with no chips or hairlines.

She has flirty blue eyes working perfectly. Open mouth with 4 original teeth. She wears a vintage replacement blonde mohair wig. She has good colouring with no scuffs or rubs.

She does have a very fine pink surface firing fault on the side of her head which was caused during manufacture(see last picture). With her original composition walker body in sound condition, one reglued finger, surface repairs around the neck/arm sockets. Please note, she is in full working condition, the key is an antique replacement, the original key would have been marked R D, her legs step & she cries ma ma.

She walks when supported/held around the waist she was never intended to walk on her own as the weight of the body could not be supported by the legs, you hold her so that her feet are just touching the floor so that she can step, when held she will step & cry ma ma. Her head does not turn it is not part of the mechanism, her head is strung through the arms which is how she was originally made, of course you can move her head to any position you wish. She is fully working as she was intended to work.

Wearing a very pretty antique dress & two petticoats also bloomers with newer socks & shoes. A BEAUTIFUL RARE GIRL, SHE IS ALL READY FOR HER NEW HOME. IF I HAVE MISSED ANYTHING PLEASE ASK.
