Sold – Couple on a Bench
This automaton made by Peter Robbins C.1987. When turned by hand with the crank handle the lady slowly nods off, only to be rudely awakened with a kick from her husband, when he spots something exciting! The sequence of movements are complex yet understated demonstrating real ingenuity and confidence.
The Couple, the bench and the box are made of 3 contrasting types of wood. Hand carved on a wooden base with green felt top.
34cm high x 28cm wide.
