This campy miniature automaton by Thomas Kuntz was a one-off made for a client who in turn gave it as a gift to her fellow who loves magic and the haunted mansion.It features a miniature pepper's ghost illusion,two automaton fiugures,a pop up rose and a small 18 note music box of Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven.The mechanism is hand cranked and machined from solid brass steel and other metals all very tightly organized into the rather small cabinet, visual foreshortening and special painting gives the impression that the box is much deeper than it actually is!.It has a small hand cranked curtain that can be closed when it is not in use.All of the figures,engineering,machining painting , ornamental details and model work are by Thomas Kuntz.The miniature organist's costume was made by Blake Bolger.
