We are pleased to offer for your consideration a wonderful all original early Easter Rabbit Twirling and Painting an Easter Egg Automaton.   This adorable little Easter bunny was most likely made by Roullet & Decamps in Paris, France circa 1880's 1890's.  The bunny is covered with real rabbit fur (yellowed slightly with age) and he has glass eyes.  His clockwork mechanism is strong and he is wound with a removable key on his right side below his arm and the on/off lever is in the center of his chest above his apron.  The tin lithographed egg has the scene of a little boy playing a game of skittles with toy soldiers (see photo #7).  The green felt apron is faded and has wear (a few little holes) mostly at the bottom  When wound the rabbit will raise and lower his ears, turn his head a little from side to side while the tin lithographed egg in his right paw spins rapidly (please see the video above).  The automaton measures overall just under 15" tall to the top of his ears when they are in the up position as shown in photo #1.  What an adorable and rare Easter Bunny automaton.  The key included is not original but does fit the winding shaft well.   His fur is in great condition, he's still nice and soft and he works great!  He will definitely make a fun addition to any automata collection or a wonderful holiday surprise for someone you love!  PLEASE REVIEW ALL PHOTOS AND USE THE ENLARGE AND ZOOM FEATURES AS WELL AS WATCH THE VIDEO ABOVE FOR THE BEST DESCRIPTION OF THIS EARLY ROULLET et DECAMPS EASTER RABBIT AUTOMATON.
