Robo-canine-consciousness Explained

Daniel Dennett, on his web page, asks:
DO YOU RECOGNIZE THIS ROBOTIC DOG?

REWARD for information! I found it in an antique shop in Paris. It was made in France in the 1950s, so I have named it Tati, in honor of Jacques Tati (whose classic film Mon Oncle captures the same era with the same ingenious and humorous use of technology). I do not know who made Tati, or why, and would be pleased to receive any substantiated information about its provenance.
