Vichy Smoking Chinaman Musical Box
By Brian Chesters

Hi all,  In an auction in the UK there is the following item...

  274  A Vichy smoking Chinaman with composition head, eyelid, head,
  lower jaw and arm movements, and a small wooden musical box,
  circa 1890, in restored and redressed condition, height 71 cm.
  (See Illustration)  E2000-3000

I may have been interested if it had not been re-dressed but perhaps
one of our readers is interested.
