Lara's theme ("Somewhere My Love") has been a romantic favorite of so many (including me!) since Dr. Zhivago was made into the movie. I believe it is too similar to "Fur Elise" by Beethoven to ignore the link. Just my opinion. I adore this music, whether it is called "Fur Elise" or "Lara's Theme" or "Somewhere My Love." It is simply beautiful.

This music box, made in Italy, is a lovely example of marquetry. The bouquet is detailed on top and on the sides. The colors are somewhat subdued as I feel they should be for this romantic rendition. The bombe formis charming and appropriate. All told, a beautiful offering.

Country of Origin: Italy.

Size: 4 " tall; 6 1/2" deep; 10 3/4" wide.

Marks/Labels: Oval label reading "Inlaid Wood Works"
"Art. Decor"
"Made In Italy"
Rectangular label: "Fur Elise"

Condition: There are some tiny white dots that I had not noticed until I looked at the photographs. Have tried to accentuate them in the photos. We have not tried to clean and remove them. Otherwise, the box is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. We have reduced the price because of the dots. We do not have the key.
