This French antique giltwood jewelry/music box with many lovely features is handcarved, beveled and ornately embellished throughout, The box stands on ½" diameter spherical bronze or brass feet. The box stays open independently if desired, and the winding key functions smoothly, but the music does not play. The Cover frames an interesting French antique print in very good condition, under glass, that depicts two 18th century noblewomen seated together on an elegant canapé, under a sumptuous mirror with a majestic harp in one corner and other neoclassical furnishings about them in the salon. The details in the parquet floor, the ladies' dresses and coiffure is exquisite.
Interior: There is a mirror, with only slight loss of silver on the inside of the bronze-hinged cover lid and three giltwood compartments, one of which houses the music box hardware and I have chosen to leave closed for the future owner to explore.
