The table is decorated with velvet drapes edged with metallic fringe and upon the table are arranged various objects including playing cards and two silver cups that the monkey clasps. When wound, and lever released, intricate movements occur: the monkey turns his head to one side, nods, then to the other side and nods again, and, in synchronic movements with the nods, he lifts the silver cups to reveal different possibilities including green, orange or white balls, die, little boxes, and such.

string and lever. Condition: generally excellent. Marks: (original French language paper tune label on base).
