Mechanical Crawling Baby Doll

Key wind metal mechanism attached to the joined pair of plastic arms and legs with painted baby head on top. I have collected robotics and have searched for a mechanical doll from the 1950s for some time. A tin cover went over the motor and is available.
The wind up motor still works animating the baby in a surreal slow crawl. I would guess the baby would have had some clothes at one time.
