German crank automaton with 7 figures. An outstanding as well as clever automaton, featuring six bisque headed jester figures playing various instruments led by bisque headed conductor. An unusually large piece for this particular venue, the characters' faces with open/closed mouths and painted eyes make this a most charming and appealing item. The wooden box is covered in a paper litho as well as a carpeted floor. When activated, the conductor moves on his pedestal, directs the band members who twist about in their chairs or turn their heads while playing their instruments. A different and more elaborate crank automaton than usually one encounters
