|This is Household cavalry
, a daft automata if I say so myself . Designed by Paul Spooner and made by Matt Smith
The soldiers inside the pantomime horse walk along supporting the queen in her fluffy pink
slippers ( paul had just bought a flocking machine ) then the queen turns to salute
you. I love it !!
The box is made of maple and the rest is constructed using the usual variety of materials.
There were 24 made in November 1993.
