Turkish Conjuror Automaton. Switzerland: Reuge, ca. 1936. Handsome Turkish magician figure elaborately dressed in turban, robe, and upturned shoes raises and lowers two cones held in his hands. As he does, the objects (cards, candies, and others) on the table in front of him vanish, appear, and change places. He moves his head back and forth to view the proceedings. Key-wound music box and mechanism concealed inside the plush-covered base. The magician is accompanied by two songs as he performs: “Fra Diavolo” and “Boccacio.” 19 ½” high. Very good working condition.
