Repaired inner mechanism 1875 automaton lady

Dug North, who runs a great blog “for makers and collectors of mechanical
automata and mechanized toys
” says:

This is the repaired inner mechanism of a Vichy automaton made in
France in 1875. The complete automaton depicts a lady who breathes, closes her
eyes, turns her head, fans herself, and lifts her glasses to her eyes.
