Le Joyeux Contrabassiste (1904)

June 6, 2014 0 Comments

Unknown toy by F. Martin.
Mechanism: clockwork
H. 18 cm.
E.T. Coll.

The picture of the stage of the centrepiece representing a fun fair on a square, shows the bass player. And since we have never seen a second one, so far, we assume the bass player was especially made for the World Fair. If you take a good look at the picture of the World Fair you see more strange characters made by Martin. Especially lady-figurines with different clothes. See also the picture in this archive of the unknown lady-figurine. This picture was given to me by a collector and he got this picture from a private person.
