These musical carousels or mosques, originally designed to dispense cigarettes (they will hold peppermint sticks or little flowers) were made in Italy in a small town near Florence. This piece is handmade in Capodimonte ceramic and finished with gold-plating over brass. As the doors open to the lovely "Lara's Theme" from Dr Zhivago, the old style Reuge Lyre is revealed inside. As they close you are treated to "Edelweiss" from "The Sound of Music." At it's top, this piece features a tiny cherub playing a mandolin or lute. It is a beautiful porcelain musical in the Capodimonte cherub and floral design and measures approx 7" in diameter and 13" high.
