A display automaton dating from the 1950’s or 60’s made by Harold Gale. It was mains electric powered and is complete with the mechanism but not working. The figure is in generally good condition but not working. We bought him as a display model only and he is being sold for display only or for mechanical restoration.
Provenance: from a major USA collection

The beard and hair are fine mohair or similar and are of exceptional quality. The clothes are original Pink Velour (mmmmm!). The modelling of the character face is also of first quality.
