Articulated Folk Art, Simple Automaton Carved & Painted Barking Dog Charges Man Unknown Maker, Circa 1890-1900ish’

Sliding the leaver causes the big dog with a mouth full of teeth and flapping jaw to leave his doghouse and approach the gent wielding his walking stick. There are strings attached to the man’s arms and dog’s mouth ; activating the thumbpiece causes a wood and tin spring to pull-back as it passes nail posts within; this activates the dogs jaw and with strings attached causes the man’s arms to move up and down. Please call for more information.
(31.25" x 6 x 7")
