Three Tulip flowers framed by an filetto border, adorn the lid of this beautiful light blue Italian inlaid birds' eye elm box. It can play "Waltz of The Flowers" or you may select a different tune. The movement is visible under a window and activated when you lift the lid. The interior is lined in a lovely beige suede-like fabric. featuring a ring bar compartment. It sits on little brass feet and measures: 4 3/4" x 4 1/4" x 2 1/2."
Please note: The colors of the flowers may be in different order. (Please see the Pink Tulip box) They've been different in every order so far.... but charming in every way.
The Italian word "filetto" translated means "thread" and therefore the pattern that has used or has been framed with a Filetto border has (in English), a "thread-like" border. Skilled marquetry is required for this extra delicate inlay.
