SOLD Rare Napoleonic Prisoner of war Automaton

This product is currently unavailable
This is such a fabulous and rare Napoleonic prisoner of war carved automaton.
Dating from around 1800.
There are 4 fabulous carved ladies in high regency costume, all with articulated limbs. when the wheel turns these ladies move, the lady on the end rocks the cradle, the others turn and move their limbs.
The spinning jenny (at least I think that is what it is), does have some missing pieces. the wheels underneath seem to be all in order.
overall this rare, delicate and early item is in wonderful condition for its age with some minor damage but a rare survivor
