Welcome to our online shop.

Our automata are guaranteed for authenticity and mechanical operation and prices are very competitive. Automata are excellent stores of value as well as great entertainers. The House of Automata are experts in the field and know what the automaton should do, who made it and how to restore or conserve it. Most collectors start with the simpler types such as the Decamps Rabbit in a Cabbage or a Leaping Tiger and then expand their collection as they delight in the effect these classics have on their audience. We will happily send more pictures and details on request.

*We want you to be completely happy with your automaton and  guarantee to refund the purchase price for UK customers if the automaton is returned for any reason. (Overseas: same guarantee but excludes shipping costs).
