CLOCKWORK TUMBLING ACROBAT ANTIQUE TOY C 1900

A colourful, clockwork tumbling acrobat, probably French. His body is made of wood and his painted face of bisque with glass eyes. One of the photographs shows him on his side, fully extended where the pin for the key can be seen. When wound, he tumbles and tumbles. The costume is most probably a later addition, since these items were well played with and thus worn. But it has been done nicely and in character.
