Esmeralda Animated Fortune Teller Machine

Do not fear me gypsy. All I want from you is your tears...

Meet Esmeralda! For just a quarter, she will peer into your soul and tell your future... not bad huh?

Reminiscent of the old, electro-mechanical machines that once filled penny arcades during the early 20th century, this animated mechanical fortune teller, that I designed and hand crafted, is about 1/3rd the size of a full-sized machine yet operates exactly like the larger ones do including giving you a fortune card!

Constructed using all new high-quality materials, the miniature wooden cabinet is small enough that it fits practically anywhere. It measures just 2 feet tall (24"), 10" wide (18" wide lantern-to-lantern) and 12" deep. Once 25 cents is inserted into the coin push, little Esmeralda comes to life! (Psst... We bought it)

For your enjoyment, our online show, now has nearly eight thousand circus posters from 1880 to the present, from the Netherlands to America, from A2 format to several square metres. At the heart of the collection, and dating from 1880-1930, are nearly 3,500 colour lithographs by the Hamburg printer Adolph Friedländer. This year alone we have added 7,000 circus photos and picture postcards. Our sophisticated search engine has hundreds of headwords – not just for acts and artistes, and for owners and individual circuses, but also for fairs, variety shows and the theatre.
