Aubade a la lune musical automaton. Rare and highly coveted by automata lovers is this seated man with papier mache painted face and glass eyes, retractable tongue, playing a mandolin and singing to the "Quarter Moon," papier female face with movable lower jaw and "winking glass eyes," when the original "L.B." Lambert key is wound, the man turns his head, back and fourth as well as forward, raising his left hand supporting the mandolin, swiveling the right bisque hand to strike the strings while the "Moon" moves the lower jaw up and down and "winks" her glass eye in welcome response, clothing appears original, music and movements well fuctioning. Some professional refurbished and repaint of many areas of mache "Moon" and base as well as some touchup on man's face, but still a magnificent piece.
