An interesting, rare, wind-up mechanical Clown Magician, produced in Japan in the 1950’s, probably by the Franconia company. He uncovers the table to show either nothing or a little rabbit which disappears/appears when he puts his hat down - this all depends on what the position was when he stopped before. It is in perfect working order. There has been a query as to whether he should be wearing a hat - the answer is obviously 'no', because he is using it to cover the rabbit !

This item is rare, and the condition is very good indeed.

International buyers, please enquire about postage and any other fees or taxes before bidding in the auction or purchasing the item.
