Unusual Doll Animated Live Steam Mill

175.00

Here is an unusual Doll & Cei Live Steam Mill, Circa 1920. It is 8 X 8 X 8”, hand painted tin and pressed steel with Doll decal on base. It is equipped with an animated turntable that allows a worker prodding a donkey to exit & enter the mill via a sprung front door. The Mechanism allows for a mechanical bucket pump to bring water from the hollow base to the flu and onto the paddles, but it needs some repair, as part is loose. The roof has been opened, to allow repair. The drive wheel has been repaired and is missing its small hand crack handle. Over-all it shows moderate playwear, but is very charming and not an easy piece to find, G-VG.
