French Automaton by Lambert, Paris

This rare French musical automaton depicts  circus clown teaching his pig to perform a handstand. The clown ushers the pig on with a tap of his cane while sticking his tongue out. The pig then proceeds to execute an impressive one handed handstand. Accompanying the automation is a cylinder music box playing two tunes. The faces are hand painted with lifelike detail and nuance. The result is a jovial scene with vibrant colors and costumes. By Lambert of Paris.
