Unmarked Florentine Octagon Music Jewelry Box Bun Feet Children Fleur de Lis
SALE Look at this lovely unmarked Florentine Octagon shaped Music Jewelry Box with Bun feet and a modified fleur de lis design. Because it is unmarked, or at least there were no foil tags found, I am unsure if it is made in Italy, or one of the Florentine style boxes made in Japan, but it certainly has all the characteristics of the great Florentine Italy jewelry boxes I have owned. With a creamy white background and lots of gold gesso trimmed, this wooden box has an oval design on the very top with two little girls. I'm not sure of the name of the printed picture showcasing the top, but have seen it before. I love the little bun feet, and also the fact that there are two sections inside, with the top section that can be removed, while covering your larger pieces when it is in place.
The music box works great, and the tune is "Somewhere My Love." I believe that is from Dr. Zhivago. I purchased this in a little antique town in Central KY a few weeks ago, and I am always happy to find great Florentine jewelry/music boxes. You won't be disappointed to add this one to your collection. I have taken pictures from all sides so you can see the condition for yourself. It's just lovely.
The box stands just under 4 1/2" tall, and it is 7 3/4" across the top measuring East to West, 7" measuring North to South, and 8" measuring diagonally. If you wish, you might also use it as a dresser box or chest for your favorite fashion doll. It would make a lovely piece of furniture for your French or German Fashion doll!
I am always happy to combine purchases to save you on shipping, so please let me know if you are interested in other items I have listed. You may see a lovely floral Florentine tray in some of the pictures that I will be listing next. In addition, I have many other trays and different pieces of Florentine in my shop, so please take a look.
Thanks so much for shopping with me, and God Bless YoU! May we honor Him in all we say and do!
