This is a superb example of a HAND CARVED BLACK FOREST MUSICAL JEWELRY BOX with CHAMOIS DECORATION with WORKING KEY and LOCK. This has so much going for it. First off is the condition which is excellent with great color and patina. The chamois carving on the lid is very well done. It is musical. There is a wind up key on the bottom which starts the music when wound. It is not triggered by lifting the box or opening it. Then there is the working lock which is a bit of a rarity. We often find these boxes but rarely with working locks. There are two small swivel out trays with pale blue silk lining and a tufted bottom. The bottom tray is the same with a silk lining and a tufted bottom. The box measures 11" high and 7" wide and 5" deep.
