This is Mr. J.N. Maskelyne and his automaton “Zoe.”
Mr. J.N. Maskelyne & his famous automaton “Psycho.” 22 inches high, cross-legged, turbaned Indian figure, solved arithmetical problems, identifies playing cards, and plays whist.
Niar? Blume and his automatons. Likely a ventriloquist as well. I cannot find anything on him.
