Amazing Humanoid Automata
Be amazed at these three little Humanoid Automata: the musician, the draughtsman and the writer. The dolls are 240 years old and a testament to the creativity and skill of Pierre Jaquet-Droz, his son Henri-Louis Jaquet-Droz and fellow clockmaker Jean-Frédéric Leschot. Image: en.wikipedia.org
Antiques Roadshow featured one of Britain's oldest and most valuable doll's house worth £150,000 . The house was made in 1705 on the Isle of Dogs for a Miss E Westbrook. What is remarkable is that it has remained within the original family for over 300 years and in its original condition.
