Standing upon a three-wheeled tinplate platform is a bisque-headed girl with blue glass inset eyes, painted lashes and brows, accented nostrils and eye corners, closed mouth with accented lips, pierced ears, blonde mohair wig over cork pate, carton torso and legs, wire upper arms, metal lower arms.
When wound, the little girl glides forward and in circles on her platform base,turns her head,and waves her arms up and down as though catching butterflies.
