Marie Antoinette's Automaton Dulcimer Player


(Video Link)


Marie Antoinette, the Queen of France, was presented with this mechanical marvel in 1785. It's a machine in the form of a lady playing a dulcimer. The lady isn't just decorative, but an essential part of the musical performance. Be sure to watch the whole video to see other amazing automatons from the same time period.
