Delightful vintage toy shows how the sausage gets made

Philip Treece primarily collects most anything to do with conjuring and magicians. In fact, he's got an entire website dedicated to his massive collection. But that didn't stop him from picking up this super-cool vintage automaton that depicts a butcher making sausage.

He writes:

Had a staggering find today. An original Ron Fuller automaton, all beautifully hand painted on tin, all working. I’ve been a lover of The Cabaret Mechanical Theatre for years and to be able to have a piece from one of their artists is unbelievable. Just a fluke of being at the right antique fair at the right time.
