Offering this exquisite domed wooden music box from the beloved and highly regarded American artist, Edna Hibel, whose artwork is showcased on the cover. I have seen it described as "Girl With Flowers" and Edna's signature "Hibel" is on the print.
Box was made in Italy, with a Swiss movement and plays Barcarole Hoffmanns Erzahlungen beautifully. Inside has a crushed velvet lining in a brown/gold color. Hinged box has the original tassel and key that works perfectly.
Measures: 10 1/2 inches wide, 6 1/8 inches front to back and approximately 3 inches high, counting the domed top and the brass feet.
Box is highly lacquered with a brilliant shine and gloss. Artwork is fabulous, featuring a beautiful young girl with long flowing hair, holding a bouquet of flowers in her outstretched hand. She has a very thoughtful expression, and the most amazing eyes.... so realistic. It will be a pleasure looking at this beauty on your dressing table every day!
Condition: Excellent condition. Clean and odor free. Has two very tiny imperfections: a ding on the front edge and a small ding to the lacquer on the back. Scratches are few and minor. Have to really scrutinize to see any because of the high gloss.
Layaway available on many regular priced items in our shop. Please email to discuss your requirements. We will try our best to work with you.
