French fortune teller

A very Kitsch '50/'60s French fortune teller - not to everyone's taste, but very different.

I saw this in a Dorset auction house. At first I thought the machine was pictured on its side. !PUZZLED! The French seemed to have converted a lot of their older machines into fortune tellers. I suspect this started life as something else. The estimate is low though.

I imagine it's an early 1910 -1930s roulette mech remodelled into that '60s case. It would have been great to see how it was reconfigured inside.

I've got a similar machine (for sale) in a slightly different case, also Formica.
See pics for model and mechanism.
