I make a range of automata, based on actual ships. Each automaton consists of 9 sections which move in a wave motion, the centre section has the ship attached to it.
These are toys for grown-ups, and are not suitable for children
Each automaton come in a sturdy cardboard box, and is suitable for posting.
The automata shown below are currently available at 95.00 each plus postage.
