Automatons are well demonstrated in the upcoming sale Automata: Life and Other Illusions by Potter & Potter Auction, which will showcase fascinating treasures by Vichy, Lambert, Phalbois, and their contemporaries. The items from their categories of clocks and watches include Gordon Bradt six-man kinetic clock, circa 1990. It is a handcrafted, brazed, and molten solid brass electric clock.
A Ladder acrobat performing a handstand is an intriguing example of automatons. There’s a whole range of delightful objects, many for decorative concept and function; from automata of a life-size conjuror figure of a magician in the film “Sleuth” to Chanteur by the gaslight musical figure. Similarly, raising interest amidst the lots is a Magician figure that turns his head side to side and nods, and performs a series of changes with the cups, among many other transposes.
