Rabbit in a Cabbage

The clockwork mechanism has been serviced, the fur covered rabbit has the original fur and the cabbage its original leaves in the correct shape for this iconic automaton. Strangely amusing and instantly popular with all who see it. Complete with its original distinctive circular R&D key.
