French Automaton by Lambert, Paris

This rare French automaton by Lambert, Paris depicts a clown teaching his pig to perform a handstand, while a hidden cylinder music box plays two different tunes. The articulated action includes the clown moving the hoop to entice the pig, while tapping his cane, turning his head, and rolling his tongue in and out. The pig rises from a standing position to a handstand using both hands, and then onto one hand.
