This Chinese jewelry box is very unique in that it is also a working music box. Made in Shanghai about 50-70 years ago, this one is also one of the larger sizes. It measures 11 1/2" high x 7 1/2" wide by 5 1/2" deep. That does not count the height of the handle when raised. It is 2" taller than any other one like this that we have had and sold.

Open the magical doors and feast your eyes on the numerous draws to store your precious trinkets. Lined in a brilliant, silk-like fabric, it will be a joy every day to select your baubles from it.

The music box works when the bottom drawer is opened and closed and wound up. It is a familiar sounding tune, but we don't know the name of it. It is a bit finicky but does indeed work.

The wood is likely a rosewood as China used it extensively for furniture making.

Very good vintage condition.
