AUTOMATON MINOR

A lighter and cheaper version of the "Patent Automatons" made by Ransomes, Sims & Jefferies in the early 20th century. In 1915 this model was being offered in 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 & 16 inch sizes at prices ranging from £2.0.0d to £5.15.0d. These are distinguished from the contemporary "Automatons" by the rectangular, rather than rounded, name plate.
