This is a beautiful vintage musical jewellery box, made in Italy and dating to the 1970s/80s. It has a quality Japanese musical movement and beautiful floral Marquetry on the lid. This is made up of various inlaid fruitwoods, some of which have been stained to add colour to the flowers. The box has a beautiful Burr Walnut veneer and this has been polished to a high gloss finish. It has Boxwood stringing to the front and back, and a polished brass finish around the keyhole.
The box has a beautiful streamlined form, reminiscent of designs from the Art Deco period. It has beautiful curvature to the lid and sides, and stands raised on stylish coned feet.
The interior is lined with soft brushed felt, and the lid has an oval mirror with silk cord trim.
The box has a single long stop hinge which prevents the lid from falling back, and its lock is also brass. It is complete with its original key and it locks securely.
The box plays a beautiful tune called 'My Sun' and it winds up via a key on the base. The tune plays at the correct speed and stops as it should when the lid is closed.
Care should be taken not to over wind the key ... 2 turns is sufficient.
The box is in beautiful vintage condition with no missing Marquetry or stringing.
It has minor light superficial wear which is barely visible. The base has retained its original MADE IN ITALY and tune title labels.
Note: The raised section which covers the musical movement makes up 5.5cms of the length.
The box will be sent securely packaged and free by Next Day Special Delivery.
