Italian Birds Eye Maple with Ballerina Inlay

This item has been sold

A clear poplar wood ballerina inlay within a filetto border adorns the lid of this beautiful Bird's Eye Maplewood music box. It features little brass feet and offers the option to view the mechanism by lifting a small cover that is lined in pink as is the interior jewelry compartment. It was in another box that we've just unpacked from our old store. Always displayed in a cabinet there, it measures 7 1/4" x %4" x 2 1/4" high and its price promises to delight. A box this size playing a Reuge movment is great value for your dollars. It plays "Swan Lake" with a Reuge 18 note tune mechanism.

The Italian word "filetto" translated means "thread" and therefore the pattern that was used and framed with a Filetto border has (in English), a "thread-like" border. Skilled marquetry is required for this extra delicate inlay.
