Item Description: Translate description
Standing upon a velvet covered wooden base is a bisque head doll depicting dandy gentleman, dark blue glass paperweight inset eyes, slightly-parted lips, pierced ears, blonde mohair wig over cork pate, carton torso and legs, wire upper arms, bisque forearms, wearing (partially original) Marquis costume and top hat, and holding a bone cigarette holder which, when wound, he appears to be smoking; a bellows activity is designed to cause the cigarette draft to move through his right arm and exhale through his mouth, while music plays. Excellent condition, music and movements function well, smoking bellows may need replacement. Marks: Depose Tete Jumeau SGDG 2 (doll). Comments: Leopold Lambert, circa 1890, the automaton appeared in their catalog as "Petit Marquis Fumeur".
