Black minstrel clockwork toy hand-painted featuring a black woman playing a banjo accompanied by her gentleman caller adorned in a top hat. The clockwork mechanism with music (plink, plank, plunk) contained within the lady s hoop dress, the gentleman caller is attached in a most unique way to her skirt. When activated she appears to strum the banjo with her right hand and his upper body as well as head sway to and fro, all while being propelled in a forward motion.
