This is an attractive musical cigar carousel. It features ceramic panels with floral designs set within gilt metal fittings. Once the top finial is turned, the four panels swing open to reveal four holders for the cigars and the music box plays “The Blue Danube” by Strauss. The winder for the music box is underneath the main unit (see image), and this area is marked “Made in Italy” and “Brevettato” (patented). The overall condition is very good for age although there is some spotting of the gilt on the top of the carousel and minor rubbing on one ceramic corner. This is not only a most decorative piece for your home or study, but could be used to hold cigars or other short, slender items. Height 9.5 ins (24cm). 1380 grams.
This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 170. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $60.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
