La Japonaise, a Circa 1885 Musical Automaton, from the Important Watches and Clocks Sale, June 2012

With a papier mâché head, a large blue paper parasol in her left hand and an fan held in her right, La Japonaise bows her head and turns from left to right while blinking, twirling the parasol and fanning herself while music play; the musical automaton was a highlight of June 2012's  Important Watches and Clocks sale.
