Hi Dug,Do You know the dumpling eater from the organs from Hansjörg Leible ?http://www.magic-mechanical-music.de/Hauptseiten/MP-English.htmlGreatings from Falk ( http://kugelbahn.blog.de/ )
I wonder if it would be possible to hide the rat wire under the jacket of the pirate
Hello,The figure on the top is actually Napoleon, he is dressed in military uniform...this was determined by the eagle on his hat…and other period paintings and lithos of the period. The Germans used their clocks to “poke fun” at other cultures… If anyone has any interest in other Automa or unique BF pieces… they can be seen at www.blackforestclocks.blogspot.com I am always adding to my collection…so if anyone out there has pieces of interest that they are considering selling… please contact me through the website.Best, Justin
