More exciting news about our upcoming October 14th doll show! We will have several free presentations on dolls and a display and demonstration of antique and vintage automatons. The display will include this Bébé au Polichinelle by the Leopold Lambert, circa 1895. The crying character head is Mold 211 by Jumeau. When wound, the little girl raises and lowers her broken doll, then sadly turns her head and wipes her eyes with her handkerchief.
