This is a beautiful small musical jewellery box, made in Italy and dating to the 1960s. It is in superb condition, and it is very evident, that the box has seldom been used.
The box is made of satinwood and has beautiful marquetry inlay to the lid. The marquetry features pretty birds, mythological creatures which resemble Griffins, and scrolling leafy vines. It has an Oriental like appearance.
All of the wood has been beautifully polished and has a gorgeous smooth, high gloss finish.
The box is complete with its original piano hinge. This is a quality 'stop' hinge which prevents the lid from extending too far back.
The box stands raised on its original shaped feet.
The interior has a single storage compartment and the musical movement is cased to the left of this. The casing has a Satinwood cover which can be removed if the movement ever requires attention.
The Musical Movement
This box has a quality Swiss 'Premilex' 18 note movement. It plays a very pretty tune but we have not been able to decipher its title. It is currently in good working order, playing the tune at its correct speed.
Operating The Musical Movement
The movement winds up via the key on the bottom of the box. Four turns of the key are sufficient to play the tune in full. The music stops playing as it should, when the lid is closed or when the movement has fully unwound.
Notes On Vintage Musical Movements
As with all musical boxes, care should be taken not to over wind the movement. Over winding will result in the movement malfunctioning. We are not responsible for movements that are over wound or for movements which deteriorate from further age and use, once the box is purchased.
Please read our returns policy which includes our policy on musical movements.
This wonderful box is in excellent condition for its 50 plus years of age. All of the marquetry is present and intact, and the box is structurally sound. There is very little wear to this box!
The hinge is in perfect working order.
Please use the following measurements to ensure the box is the right size for your requirements.
