Mechanical doll Suok made by Alexander Getsa from St. Petersburg, styled after mechanical dolls of the 18th and 19th centuries. At that time, the Swiss watchmaker Pierre Jaquet-Droz and his son Henri-Louis Jaquet-Droz created well-known automata «Writer», «Draughstman», and «Musician». The automata made by Jacques de Vaucanson were equally well known.
