Art Deco style dancing Josephine Baker automaton

Art Deco style dancing Josephine Baker automaton
Check out this interesting dancing automaton depicting Josephine Baker.

From the eBay description:
This unusual piece showing the Josephine Baker's legendary, dancing tap on illuminated stage. The Art Deco scenography and the stage are made in pink metallic paint aluminum, but the surface stage is polished like mirror (she used that kind of floor to achieve special effects in her dance movements). The stage has a little bulb in the corner. The rare mechanism is electromechanical. Also, this Piece has something like a microphone or speaker that it connected on back the stage (has a very long cord).

Here is the full eBay listing with many very large photographs of this Art Deco style dancing Josephine Baker automaton

Judging by the abandoned use of the word these days, anything made between the first and second World Wars is Art Deco. This is just not so. Art Deco defines a style, a look, an artistic palette which is quite specific.

Très créatif, mais un peu effrayant.
