Patent chain Automaton?

I am a new member and just purchased what I think is a patent chain automaton circa1905. I will try to add some photos if anyone can advise.

it is pretty much complete with the exception of the grass box, one handle missing and  only half of the chain.

i would like to restore it so if anyone can offer any help or advice feel free. 

In particular does anyone have any good pictures or drawings of a grass box I could make one from or reproduction brackets and is there a 'modern' equivalent of the chain?


thanks in advance
