The BBC website reports that Roger Daltrey of The Who will be selling his collection of rare automata. Daltrey and his wife have acquired seven sophisticated 19th Century French automata over several years.
The collection will be sold at Lyon and Turnbull's fine furniture and works of art auction on 28 September and may bring as much as £50,000, about $65,000 USD.
