I have a video of this playing and would be happy to text it to you. I can’t figure out how to add it to the listing. Text 8014276221 for video This is an extremely rare and exquisite piece! Never have I seen another hit the market. Antique French Leopold Lambert Tea Drinker Automaton. Never do you see these come to market. The unfortunate part is this automaton was in excellent condition prior to shipping. He was shipped and arrived in this condition. I’ve had several people tell ...me he is very much repairable however I do not have the knowledge or skill or time to do so. So I am selling him as is. I have taken very detailed photos of this beautiful piece for your viewing. Please take this into consideration when bidding as he will be your responsibility to repair the damages and get him back in working order. I will have him professionally packaged. He is a lovely piece and I hope he goes to a home that will restore him properly.
I am listing this rare automaton with no reserve. The photos I’ve included are what he looks like now and photos of his previous condition. Please bid with the knowledge that you will have to repair him as I will not be doing that. He is being sold as it. I have another rare automaton that was also damaged in shipping I will be listing today with no reserve as well! Be sure to check out my listings.
