Vintage Asian Style Musical Jewelry Box in Black with Twirling Geisha and Fuchsia Interior
SALE! 15% OFF! Offered is a vintage jewelry box in a design many will recognize. The style is Asian with a black lacquer appearance and painted designs. It is not lacquer, but painted wood. But the black background provides a nice contrast for the painted country scenes including pagodas and mountains. There are slivers of what we believe is abalone providing borders on the edges. But, all of the above is not the star of this show. The star is inside. The box is musical and amazingly still plays. When opened, one sees a bright fuchsia plush interior. The back of the top has graduated mirrors that present a stage for the twirling geisha in full kimono. She twirls as the music plays what we think is "here comes the bride." Another surprise inside is the original keys! There is one drawer on the outside with a red bead pull. The interior has two wells to either side. The box is marked on the bottom with an angel and lettering that may say VDA210. The box is 8 1/4" wide, 5 1/4" long and 5 1/4" deep. Please note: this is in very good vintage shape as evidenced by the keys, the musical still playing and the geisha still twirling. But--there is some paint loss on top and we found missing "veneer" or paint at the bottom left and top right edge. Item 5157a Lot 6/1/7
